Positive Dip Results

Coho salmon fry in Oswald Creek

We encourage you to mail in or drop off your Dip test results as soon as possible so that your Take the Dip efforts can be included with the rest of the test results and make the most of the information collected.  If you are done with your Take the Dip kit please remember to drop it off to participating Surrey Facilities as they can be refilled and used again.

See the table of Take the Dip 2015 positive dip results here and learn more about what these test results mean.

Where will the Dip results go?

Your one dip will help protect little Coho salmon fry as well as many other aquatic species of salmon, trout, bugs and plants all over the City. The more Dips we get the better chance we have at taking action to prevent pollution and support our healthy water habitats!

Surrey’s ‘Take the Dip’ supports local and worldwide initiatives undertaking watershed protection awareness programs. Once all the mail-back postcards are returned, a summary spreadsheet with results around the City will be posted on this page and the information will also be forwarded to national and international organizations, such as Evergreen Canada - Uncover Your Creeks (Tynehead - Evergreen hosts monthly sampling in Tynehead Park in Surrey!), the World Water Monitoring Challenge and the Freshwater Watch. Visit their websites if you are looking for more information about other water quality awareness campaigns being undertaken locally and around the world. There are also more City fish programs, such as SHaRP for students.
