Water Quality Monitoring of Regional Rivers: Year 2
Check out the results from year two of the Water Quality Monitoring of Regional Rivers Project available here.
Throughout the Northeast Avalon region, there are many rivers / streams that make up the 79 watersheds in the region. Northeast Avalon ACAP (NAACAP) began a three year water quality monitoring project in 2014. NAACAP had conducted water sampling at numerous locations during past projects, but no continuous water quality monitoring was conducted. With this project, we wanted to initiate regular water quality monitoring to fill in some of the monitoring gaps.
At the end of the 2015-2016 project year, water quality monitoring data has been collected in 43 of the 79 watersheds on the Northeast Avalon, and there are 77 regular sample sites.
