Data collection infoGrab samples are collected for water by community water samplers for turbidity, TSS, and specific conductance according to methods reviewed in Duncan and Duncan (2012) and Clark (2003). The protocols that were used for the macroinvertebrate monitoring program follow methods developed by Environment Canada under the Canadian Aquatic Biomonitoring Network (CABIN). Stream discharge measurements followed Resource Inventory Committee (RIC, 1998) standard procedures, and involved stretching a tape measure across the channel and metering the water velocity at intervals of 15-30 cm at least four times per year.
Data processingData was primarily summarized using ggplot2 and other graphical packages in program R (Version 3.1.2, R Core Team, 2014). However, temperature plots and some comparisons of turbidity and TSS were summarized in SAS (SAS Institute 2000). Boxplots were used to aid the summary of water quality parameters by year.

Resource locationHarrop and Narrows creeks are located on the south side of the West Arm of Kootenay Lake east of the city of Nelson, B.C in the community of Harrop-Procter. The headwaters of the creeks are situated in the Nelson Range of the Selkirk Mountains and drain high gradient north-facing slopes reaching elevations of just over 2,300 m down to Kootenay Lake at 530 m.
