Description

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.

Objective(s)

  • Evaluating the effect of a combination of innovative methods for managing watercourses and their banks to improve water quality.

From 2014 to 2017

Project duration

Water protection

Service

IRDA also fulfils mandates for municipalities and government agencies looking to protect their drinking water intakes and recreational waters.

Partner
