To provide information on water resources in six major watersheds on the west coast of Vancouver Island, a water quality inventory was conducted between May and November, 1997. The project was designed to provide information on any limitations to drinking water or other potential water uses (e.g., recreation, fish habitat). The quantity aspects of water resources are being addressed in a separate report. Sixty-one sites are included in this study, representing six major river systems and one lake area: Klanawa River, Little Nitinat River, Nitinat River, Mt. Rosander area, Caycuse River, Gordon River, and San Juan River. Each site was sampled four times through the period, representing spring, summer, and fall. At each station, samples were collected for a wide variety of characteristics: Giardia, Cryptosporidium, fecal coliforms, and a wide range of water chemistry parameters.
