We have started our data collection project!
One of our concerns is that there has been no water data collected from Quartz Creek. Having data is essential to guide what happens in any watershed, so that the water values of quality, quantity, and timing of flow can be protected.
We have hired Paul Saso of Saso Consulting to collect data related to the flow of the creek. This will help us with watershed planning. As well, we will compare the data to the data used in the BC Timber Sales Hydrology Assessment Phase 2. This Assessment did not take any data from Quartz Creek, instead it uses data from another creek. We do not believe that using one creek as a proxy for our creek is suitable. The more information we have, the better we can plan and protect our valuable water.
