Public Open-Houses for Protection of Shuswap Water Quality & Safety

The “SLIPP 3-year Pilot Program” is now completed and a new Watershed Organization is being developed to Coordinate Water Quality and Safety in the Watershed.

The development is being spearheaded by the newly established “Shuswap Watershed Council” (SWC) consisting of elected leaders from Shuswap Communities, Regional Districts, First Nations, BC Govt. Agencies, Water Quality Organizations, and the Fraser Basin Council.

SWC partners agree it is very important that the public provide input into this watershed organization. SWAT Directors encourage all watershed residents to attend one of the 7 Public Open House/feedback sessions to learn what has been accomplished, what is proposed, and provide your input. We believe that affirmative and active involvement by the public is essential to protect our watershed water quality now and for the future.

The locations and dates are:

  • July 9 Chase Chase Community hall 547 Shuswap Avenue 
  • July 10 Falkland Falkland Community hall 5706 Highway 97 
  • July 15 Sicamous Sicamous & district recreation Centre 1121 Eagle Pass Way 
  • July 16 Salmon arm Shaw Centre (intermissions restaurant) 2600 10th Avenue NE 
  • July 21 N. Shuswap- Scotch Creek Com hall 3852 Squilax-Anglemont Road 
  • July 23 Sorrento/S. Shuswap Sorrento Memorial hall 1150 Passchendaele Road 
  • July 28 Enderby/upper Shuswap enderby drill hall 208 George Street

Please forward this information and invite your friends, neighbors and community organizations to attend.

  1. I lived in the North Shuswap from 1992 until 2007 and already then, talk was about quality of the lake’s water. And still talk, talk and more talk. Hopefully, one of these days the ‘powers that be’ will get it right and finally get some action going. All this talk is polluting the air.
