An application for increased discharge by the Municipality of Whistler for its sewage treatment plant was received by the Ministry of Environment's Waste Management Branch in 1982. A number of agencies expressed reservations regarding the effect of the increased discharge on the Cheakamus River, particularly the possibility of increased periphyton growth in portions of the river that are important for recreation and salmonid spawning and rearing. This report includes an assessment of water quality data collected to date, from which the sampling strategy and a proposed monitoring program were drawn. The periods in which problems are likely to occur, the locations, and the parameters likely to measure the changes were identified.
