This document is one in a series that presents ambient water quality objectives for British Columbia. It has two parts: an overview, which is available as a separate document, and the report. The overview provides general information about water quality in the three tributaries to Okanagan Lake: lower Vernon, Deep, and Equesis Creeks. It is intended for both technical readers and for readers who may not be familiar with the process of setting water quality objectives. It includes tables listing water quality objectives and required monitoring. The main report presents the details of the water quality assessment for these waterbodies and forms the basis of the recommendations and objectives presented in the overview. Salmonid species are present in lower Vernon, Deep, and Equesis Creeks, and the water quality objectives in this report are to form part of a fisheries management plan for tributaries to Okanagan Lake. Water quality objectives are recommended to protect aquatic life, wildlife, irrigation water sup
