Most West Kootenay communities depend on small streams for domestic and agricultural water supply. Many of these streams also provide important aquatic and riparian habitat. The ability of these small streams to continue to supply water for human use and to support biodiversity will be increasingly impacted by climate change. The North Kootenay Lake Water Monitoring Project NKLWMP is working to improve understanding and prediction of how these small- and medium-sized watersheds are going to behave in a changing climate, especially in conditions of extreme high and low precipitation. The project has established seven hydrometric stations, two high-elevation snow course sites, two high-elevation climate stations and one low-elevation climate station on the north end of Kootenay Lake. These sites were strategically selected to complement existing regional monitoring sites. NKLWMP follows monitoring protocols established within British Columbia and uses a blend citizen scientists and professional hydrologists to collect data and maintain the monitoring program. The quality-controlled data collected and analyzed by the project will provide decision makers with much needed information to guide critical conservation efforts, land use planning, development decisions, protection of water supplies, and forest management.

Photo Note the same style of rope-driven compressor as seen on the lower grounds of the Museum. Use of compressors, which remain a relevant tool to this day, predates most modern electrical power sources. The compressors at the Rossland mines were first operated by steam power, but were switched to electrical power when it became available. The WKPL, although not as well known a name as Cominco or Le Roi, has been influential in the growth and development of Rossland and the surrounding communities.

While the Vermillion River is completely contained within the park, the Kootenay River has its headwaters just outside the park boundary, flowing through the park into the Rocky Mountain Trench , eventually joining the Columbia River. While the park is open all year, the major tourist season lasts from June to September. Most campgrounds are open from early May to late September, while limited winter camping is available only at the Dolly Varden campground.
Archaeological evidence suggests humans have been either traveling through, or temporarily residing in, the area for about 10, years. Pictographs found in the hot spring caves indicate that it was the Ktunaxa people who first made more permanent use of the area, particularly the hot springs, several hundred years ago. European fur traders and trappers passed through, as did George Simpson in , through what would later be named Simpson Pass , during his circumnavigation of the world.
The Palliser expedition used the Vermilion Pass in and reported to British government its potential as a transportation route. On the Columbia River side, an early homesteader included the hot spring that would later become Radium Hot Springs in his land claim in the s, but it was Roland Stuart and his business partner H. Pearse who were successful in acquiring the acres around the springs in as a provincial crown grant. Though the offer was not accepted, railway engineer Robert Randolph Bruce recognized the potential for a road through the area and advocated for it in with CPR president Thomas Shaughnessy and Premier Richard McBride , as a commercial link for the province to Calgary and eastern Canada.
The federal government agreed to build a road from Banff to the park boundary at the provincial border at the Vermilion Pass, while the provincial government, with some funds from the CPR, would build a road from Windermere to the border. However, the BC government under-estimated its cost, found itself over-budget and its work was suspended in , while the federal government completed their portion in November To get the British Columbia section completed, Bruce traveled to Ottawa to pitch the idea that they designate the western end of the route, through the Rockies Mountains , a national park so that road could be funded as a park improvement.

Reservations are strongly recommended. The sensation of gazing up at these towering glacial peaks is humbling. Even those who are well-travelled are unable to experience the Rockies without being touched by a sense of awe. The Kootenay Rockies region stretches from the Okanagan Valley in the west to the Alberta border in the east.
The British Columbia provincial boundary is the continental divide where water to the west flows out to the Pacific, and water to the east flows all the way to the Atlantic. The region has four mountain ranges: the Selkirks, Purcells, Monashees and the Rockies.
For the first time, the Shambhala Music Festival will be held in July next year. The electronic music festival, which draws thousands of people each year, said in a news release this week that the move is based on the advice of the province and the Regional District of Central Kootenay. He said the move will ensure the music festival can deliver the best possible experience for its guests and help the organization plan for the future. The decision comes on the back of an ongoing conversation between the independent music production company, the Regional District of Central Kootenay, and the provincial government.
In , Shambhala was placed on evacuation alert due to a wildfire that came within nine kilometers of the festival grounds. Organizers cancelled the final day line-up and many people left early. However, the festival resumed after significant rainfall and cooler temperatures. According to the province of BC, who shared statistical information with Shambhala, there is a significantly lower risk of wildfire in July in the Kootenays compared with August, particularly over the last decade.
The Southeast Fire Centre, which monitors and responds to forest fires near Salmo, the site of the annual music festival, says on average over the last 10 years there have been 11 days of high and four days of extreme fire risk every July in the area between the US border and Mica Creek. The numbers published by the province suggest the risk of extreme fire hazard is far lower in July than August, Bundschuh said. Adam Walker said it was clear that the survey was a personal attempt at engagement.
