The Ministry of Environment has undertaken the task of assessing and preparing water quality objectives for various basins and sub-basins within the province, selected on a priority basis. Recently, the Vancouver Island Region and the Planning and Assessment Branch of the Ministry of Environment prepared a Water Management Plan for the Oyster River watershed (Oyster River Water Management Plan 1988). In the report, several concerns were identified with regard to the water quality of the Oyster River. These problems are expected to become worse in view of future activities related to forestry and mining; therefore, it was recommended that water quality objectives should be established for the Oyster River watershed. This report examines water quality within the watershed. All up-to-date information available from SEAM and EQUIS data sources was examined. Some sections of the report were based on information presented in the Oyster River Water Management Plan.
