Description:
This report discusses the water quality assessment for Leech, Schram and Bailey Creeks, which are situated on the south slopes of the Joe Rich Creek watershed (east of Kelowna). The Joe Rich Watershed Monitoring Group has expressed concerns about the proposed forest development by Gorman Bros. Lumber Ltd. in this area and the potential impacts the development may have on water quality. The purpose of this program is to determine if forest development is affecting water quality in the above named creeks by comparing water quality in basins with active development to water quality in those that do not.
