Kawartha Region Conservation Authority Kawartha Water Watch Data

Map and Visualize

Kawartha Water Watch was established in the summer of 1997, the KWW water quality program was implemented to monitor and improve the health of the Kawartha watershed. Using data collected from the program, we can develop appropriate remedial measures that can be undertaken by the public to improve the ecosystem health. This program is designed to provide information on the water quality status of our aquatic resources accomplished through the combination of information from our own sampling efforts and from Provincial agencies, KWW allows for the identification of good, satisfactory and poor water quality. Water quality, for the purposes of KWW, applies mainly to Phosphate and Nitrogen concentration, coliform presence, pH, alkalinity, water clarity, and turbidity, as sampled by volunteers of the program. KWW is a program that relies almost entirely on the watershed community to monitor the water quality of our lakes and rivers. Volunteers sample water from their respective water bodies on a monthly basis, sending the results to Kawartha Conservation where they are organized, analyzed, and reported on.
