Lions Clubs International cares about the environment

Local Lions Club members are involved in measuring the water flowing into Tatchell Creek

Pat Asher

They started doing the water measurements in early February of this year. John Havens has also been measuring water on Tatchell Creek since about the same time. It is done regularly (once a week, sometimes more often) to get a clear picture of the four creeks supplying water to Dragon Lake. In the culvert of each creek, the height, width and strength of flow is measured and noted and sent away where, by use of a formula, the volume of water in each creek is calculated.  The general appearance of the creek area is noted, such as the presence of snow, ice or debris.  There are other calculations that are sometimes taken that measure the oxygen in the water, the temperature of the water and possible contaminants in the water. The information is used to establish the general health and the volume of water entering Dragon Lake. Care for the Environment is one of the major programs of Lions Clubs International. Quesnel Lions Club provides an annual donation to Baker Creek Enhancement Society to assist them with their education program
