Researchers from the University of Northern British Columbia are receiving more funding to look into the ecosystem of Quesnel Lake.
Researchers are interested in seeing how the 2014 Mount Polley Mine spill impacted the lake.
Dr. Ellen Petticrew says it’s important because a lot of the previous spills took place in rivers.
Dr. Phil Owens is also behind the research and the funding will allow them to continue for at least three years.
He says that will allow them to see the impact on salmon.
Researchers from Alberta and as far as Halifax are taking part.
