Fort Nelson First Nation Water Quality Monitoring

Map and Visualize

The purpose of the FNFN Surface Water Quality Monitoring was to compile and collect surface water data on streams throughout the seasons to establish baseline quality data on selected streams. Use of the data would contribute to the characterization of baseline conditions and provide better accuracy and reliability for water use. This project trained two First Nations representatives in all aspects of water monitoring. The project will help in managing the land base for future generations to enjoy.
