RDN Community Watershed Monitoring Network 2018

Since 2011, Qualicum Beach Streamkeepers have participated along with 11 other stewardship groups, monitoring at 62 sample sites across 22 watersheds!  Four water quality parameters that are indicative of stream health are measured, including temperature, dissolved oxygen, specific conductivity and turbidity. We monitor 8 sites in the Little Qualicum River, Grandon, and Beach Creek watersheds.

The summer monitoring starts on Tuesday, August 7th and runs for 4 succeeding Tuesdays. The fall flush is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9th, also for the 4 following Tuesdays.

Gord Almond is our leader on this important activity. If you are interested in being part of one of these sessions, (even as an observer), you can contact him at g.almond@telus.net  or 250-752-0427.
