Shuswaplakewatch.com is currently preparing for the Shuswap Lake 2010 Environmental Impact Study. A detailed project outline has been created and can be accessed here.

This environmental study will span from August 2010 to Spring of 2011, covering the complete Shuswap Lake, Little Shuswap Lake, Adams Lake, Mable Lake, and all major water bodies discharging into the Shuswap Lake.

As of now we are also accepting reports of environmental incidents and observations on this site. It is important to keep track of any lake related events and observation in order to provide the authorities with a true statistical insight in the actual happenings on the lake.
