The IRDA team is monitoring the hydrology of the three main watersheds in Saint-Zotique (Grand Marais, Ruisseau Six Arpents, and Ruisseau Dix-huit Arpents). The team has been conducting ongoing hydrometric monitoring using acoustic, barometric, and multi-parameter (conductivity and turbidity) probes, as well as collecting and analyzing water samples and estimating surface and underground flow rates and sediment and nutrient flows since June 2016. The project will continue till 2019.
From 2016 to 2019
This project will provide the municipality of Saint-Zotique with a snapshot of the health of its waterways.

The project consisted of setting up and operating six hydrometric stations in the Riviére Bullstrode watershed.
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.
This project will assist with the ongoing hydrometric monitoring of the flux and quality of water in Ruisseau Bouchard.
