LSWC tributary monitoring program
The Lesser Slave Watershed Council Tributary Monitoring Program collects water quality data for the five major tributaries of Lesser Slave Lake at upstream, mid and downstream locations. There is no government led monitoring being done in the Lesser Slave Watershed. Stakeholders and local government support this program financially so that we can collect valuable water quality information that will inform watershed management planning and decisions in the future. Water quality data is collected with portable water quality sensors and via grab samples that are sent for laboratory analysis.

Data Collection Information
HACH 30QD probe is used to collect data on physio-chemical parameters at all sampling locations. These include: temperature, pH, conductivity and dissolved Oxygen. Total and Dissolved Nutrient samples are collected in separate 250ml amber glass bottles. A preservative is added to the total nutrients sample. Fecal Coliform samples are collected in a sealed 500ml plastic bottle with a preservative powder already in the bottle. A 500ml plastic bottle is filled to measure total suspended solids. All samples are sealed and shipped overnight to the laboratory in Edmonton, AB. Monitoring activities follow the Government of Alberta’s Guideline for Surface Water Quality Monitoring and LSWC staff have been trained by Alberta Environment and Parks, Environmental Monitoring and Science Division field staff in proper sample collection and handling.
