This report presents limnological results obtained during the open-water (growing season) in the second year (2000) of the two-year Williston Reservoir intensive monitoring program. The purpose of the program is to establish a uniform, consistent, & reliable physico-chemical & biological database to enable proper assessment of change and provision of new data to forecast system productive capacity. The report begins with a review of the characteristics of this British Columbia reservoir, its current trophic state, and the sampling & analysis methods used. It then presents findings with regard to physico-chemical parameters such as temperature, oxygen, Secchi depth, dissolved solids, and nutrients; and biological parameters, including plankton abundance & biomass, chlorophyll, and primary production. The final section discusses separately each major basin of the reservoir, presenting the major limnological features of each with an emphasis on new results from the 2000 monitoring program.
