Water Quality Studies

Baseline Water Quality Studies

Youth and young adults sample water at various sites identified by the community, testing for contaminants that affect drinking water and environmental water quality. The data collected belongs to the community and helps guard against future effects of water pollution.

Contaminant of Concern Studies

Water, sediment and fish samples are collected from lakes identified by the Indigenous community and analyzed in labs for water quality and contaminant levels. Local fishers catch the fish and are trained in sampling techniques for analysis. The data is owned by the community and the results are clearly presented to community members.
