A little help from their friends

Columbia Power has provided $1,750 to assist the Friends of Kootenay Lake.

Columbia Power has provided $1,750 to assist the Friends of Kootenay Lake in the third and final year of their invasive mussel and water quality monitoring program.

The program will provide baseline data on parameters such as turbidity, total and dissolved phosphorus, total nitrogen, E. coli, ammonia and nitrate and will monitor for the presence of zebra and quagga mussels in the lake. Pictured are Krista Watts, environmental manager at Columbia Power (left) with Claire de la Salle, program director with Friends of Kootenay Lake.
