The main objective of this research project is to analyze the low water flows available in the small watersheds of southern Quebec and to develop a method for estimating these flows in the current climate context and in the future climate.
• Carry out a literature review to identify the low/ecological flows related to the free movement of fish and the methods for using these flows;
• Produce a characterization of low water/ecological flows for small watersheds in Quebec;
• Develop a method for estimating low/ecological flows for small ungauged watersheds;
• Adapt the method factors according to climate change scenarios.
From 2020 to 2023
Water protection, Air quality, Soil health
The objective of the project is to co-develop, with producers and local water management organizations, potential adaptation strategies to prevent water use conflicts in farming communities in the face of climate change.
