F19 Arrow Lake Reservoir nutrient restoration
To address the nutrient losses in Arrow Lakes Reservoir as a result of the construction of the Hugh Keenleyside, Mica, and Revelstoke dams. A bottom-up approach is taken with the addition of nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus in the form of liquid agricultural grade fertilizer), to support phytoplankton populations that are suitable for the production of Daphnia, a main food source for Kokanee.
