In August of 2008, a survey of selenium (Se) in water, zooplankton and fish (with a focus on kokanee) in Lake Koocanusa, upstream and downstream of the Elk River confluence, was conducted by Kootenay Region, Environmental Protection staff. Selenium is elevated in the Elk River as a result of coal mining within the basin. The goal of this study was to determine metals concentration, specifically Se, above and below inputs from the Elk River.
