The Peace and Slave rivers are in relatively good health, along with their Smoky and Wabasca tributaries.
That’s the latest from the Mighty Peace Watershed Alliance, which reased its State of the Watershed Report Tuesday.
Those bodies of water reportedly have strong fish populations and reasonably good water quality.
However, there are others that are showing signs of being overused.
They include critical riparian areas of the Smoky/Wapiti and Upper Peace that are highly disturbed and in poor health because of human activities.
Pollution from industry and urban activity is also hurting the water quality in some areas.
