This chapter presents available data on water quality in the Thompson Basin's rivers and lakes and identifies the problem areas. This is followed by the discussion of various land use activities, notably human settlements, industry, agriculture and recreation as they affect water quality. The effluent and run-off sources are subdivided into point and non-point sources, the latter also including erosion and sedimentation. The first part of this report discusses the point discharges to the rivers and the corresponding water quality problems. The second part discusses limnology and lake water quality. The third part discusses non-point water quality concerns, and the fourth part deals with the potential problem of Eurasian water milfoil in the basin.
