This pilot project assessed the watershed indicator risk status of 71 watersheds across most of British Columbia’s natural resource regions. Measured values for as many as nine habitat indicators within surveyed watersheds were compared to indicator benchmarks to assess risk status for each FSW (i.e., GIS-derived watershed values relative to indicator benchmarks). The defined indicator benchmarks represent one of three potential risk levels associated with fish habitat impact: (1) low, (2) moderate, and (3) high.
