Brilliant Headpond Foreshore Inventory Mapping Open

This dataset contains the openly accesible data for the FIMP survey carried out in Brilliant Headpond in 2017. The Brilliant Headpond is an 18 km section of the lower Kootenay River adjacent to the communities of Shoreacres, South Slocan, Tarrys, Glade and Thrums in southeast British Columbia. Water levels in the Brilliant Headpond are regulated by the South Slocan and Kootenay Canal dams at the upstream extent and by the Brilliant and Brilliant Expansion dams at the downstream end. Natural inflows also enter from unregulated tributaries, the largest being the Slocan River. The Brilliant Headpond and adjacent lands provide habitat for species including fish, turtles, reptiles and birds. Mapping was completed along 36,564 m of the Brilliant Headpond shoreline.
