Surface Water Quality

The RVCA has gathered information on surface water quality since the early 1970s. Today, the RVCA collects data four water quality monitoring programs:

  • Provincial Water Quality Monitoring Network (Water Chemistry)
  • RVCA Baseline Monitoring Program (Water Chemistry)
  • Watershed Watch (Water Chemistry)
  • Benthic Invertebrate Sampling (Water Biology)

Results from these monitoring programs are reviewed and reported on through our catchment and subwatershed reports.
