The Columbia Basin Water Hub
is a project facilitated by Living Lakes Canada. It is a central repository where decision makers, researchers, students, professionals and the public can access a wide variety of data and information about water in the Columbia Basin. Reports covering a wide range of topics including water quality, habitat, groundwater and geology can be found on the Water Hub, which are great resources for students. Access the Columbia Basin Water Hub here.
The Water Hub team is available to provide demonstrations to teachers and students on how to use the Water Hub. This can include how to use the searchable map to access water data for specific regions and how to conduct some basic analysis. If school groups or other learners have collected water-related information such as photos, site descriptions, cultural values, water quality test results, the Water Hub team is keen to help upload this data so it can be easily shared.
