Water Quality Monitoring Program – Pacific & Yukon Region
Environment Canada and the BC Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection have been monitoring surface water quality for many years throughout the province. This federal-provincial water quality monitoring program plays an important role in determining long term trends in water quality, identifying emerging aquatic ecosystem impacts and providing decision-making resource information to Canadians. The Canadian Information System for the Environment (CISE) provided regional funds for improving public access to our federal-provincial water quality data, information and program. Access to the water quality information will enable all of us to make informed decisions together about our water resources.
