In 2016 the Slocan Lake Stewardship Society received a grant from the Columbia Basin Trust under their CIP-AAP program to perform two studies of the hydrogeology of the Silverton Creek area.
The first study examines the Silverton Aquifer, the alluvial delta upon which the Village of Silverton has been built. It relates the water in the aquifer, from which the Village gets its drinking water, to Silverton Creek and its watershed.
The second study relates the Silverton Creek watershed to the bedrock and glacial geology that have controlled its development. It then goes on the describe how this relates to the water flow and water quality.
