As part of a collaborative effort to restore and protect Lac Boivin in Granby, this project will assist with the ongoing hydrometric monitoring of the flux and quality of water in Ruisseau Bouchard. It will use spatial flood sampling to help characterize water quality in three of the stream’s sub-watersheds.
From 2019 to 2020
IRDA has monitored and tested around 30 microwatersheds over the past two decades.
