Interior Health news release - Salmon Arm
Interior Health, the Ministry of the Environment and the First Nations Health Authority are working with the City of Salmon Arm, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, and Fraser Basin Council to monitor a large, algal bloom that has filled most of the Salmon Arm of Shuswap Lake.
The Shuswap Watershed Council (SWC) has just released a summary report about recent water quality
monitoring throughout the watershed.
The Shuswap Watershed Council (SWC) is awarding five grants this year to help farm businesses in the Shuswap watershed improve nutrient management, and ultimately protect water quality by reducing nutrient-loading to creeks and rivers.
The total value of the grants being awarded is $65,470. The expense was approved at the June 17 SWC meeting, with grants being awarded to the recipients pending site visits to the farms.
Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) Directors voted in favour of extending the services of the Shuswap Watershed Council for a three-year term until the end of 2023, pending formal approval of the bylaw by the Inspector of Municipalities.
The Shuswap Emergency Program wishes to express our condolences to the family, friends and community members whose lives were touched by Peter Kilby.
