The team at IRDA conducted hydrological monitoring on Branch 1 of the Campbell Stream (test basin) as well as the stream’s main branch, which was used as a control. The team used multi-parameter probes (conductivity and turbidity), collected and analyzed water samples, and estimated separate flow rates (surface/underground) and sediment and nutrient flows.
From 2014 to 2017
IRDA also fulfils mandates for municipalities and government agencies looking to protect their drinking water intakes and recreational waters.
