Project Description:

The Oceola Fish and Game Club developed a Watershed Health Tracking system to quantify and rank stream and riparian health within the watersheds of the District of Lake Country. Performance indicators were developed so that individual streams can be easily categorized. Factors affecting the health of these areas include percentage of area as forested cover, agricultural land or impervious surfaces; targets were developed based on known capacity for stream base flows and riparian potential. The information in a Watershed Health Tracking System can be utilized by local government staff in planning and development matters.
