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.
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.
