The Tsolum River flows from Mount Washington and joins the Puntledge River before emptying into the K'omoks Estuary. The river meanders 45 kilometres through rural areas and city neighbourhoods. An abandoned copper mine on the mountain polluted the river with toxic acid mine drainage for 40 years. The mine was capped in 2009. Learn about the problem, the solution, the recovery efforts and this amazing river.
