Limnotek provides limnology consulting services to Metro Vancouver
Limnotek support of drinking water reservoir management for Metro Vancouver is extending into a 4th year. This work contributes to proactive management of pristine drinking water reservoirs nestled in high mountains of the Metro Vancouver region as water quality could be impacted by environmental variability and climate change. This program assists in ensuring that variation and trends in reservoir quality are scientifically tracked over time. Limnotek staff work closely with field crews of Metro Vancouver in the design and implementation of detailed monitoring plans, including advanced instrumentation and data analysis. Resulting data feed into analyses developed by Limnotek to provide long term signals and short term early warnings of change in water quality upstream of the distribution system. This contribution to intensive water management is key to sustaining some of the highest quality water supplied to a metropolitan area anywhere in the world.
