Provisional water quality objectives had been set in 18 water basins up to February 1987. The basins are in all the Environment Regions except Vancouver Island. In 1986, water quality data relevant to objectives were collected in 14 of the water basins, and these data are evaluated in this report. Although the quantity of data was usually too small to check objectives completely, the evaluation gives a useful overview of the situation in 1986. Many of the objectives were met or appeared to be met, with some exceptions, in each region. Characteristics of water quality that did not always meet objectives in 1986 included total phosphorus, fecal coliforms, chlorophyll a, dissolved oxygen, cyanide, and chlorophenols. Details of the particular status of each water basin are summarized in the report.
