Trepanier Creek Water Quality

Trepanier Creek Water Quality

The Brenda Mine, located approximately 20 km northwest of Peachland, ceased mining operations in 1990. The closed mine operates a treatment plant which removes molybdenum from water collected on site. The facility typically operates from May through October when treated water is discharged into MacDonald Creek, which is a tributary to Trepanier Creek. Only a few areas of Peachland use Trepanier Creek as a source of drinking and irrigation water.

Water quality is monitored at the Peachland Municipal Intake on Trepanier Creek,
