Rideau Valley-Watershed Watch
The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority collects water quality data in correspondence with its goal to understand, manage, protect, restore, and enhance the Rideau Watershed. The data collected is used to better inform decisions and landowners across the watershed. RVCA’s surface water quality sampling efforts are focused towards two main programs, the Baseline Monitoring program, and the Watershed Watch program. The Baseline Monitoring Program aims to assess the contribution of tributary streams to water quality in the Rideau River, while the Watershed Watch program aims to evaluate water quality in lakes across the watershed.

Data Collection Information
RVCA Watershed Watch: This program is designed to monitor the lakes throughout the watershed to identify issues and trends in water quality. Samples are collected from both deep point (denoted DP) and nearshore waters. DP1/3 samples are representative of a water column sample collected from the euphotic zone (determined during sampling event), while DP2/4 samples are collected from the bottom of the lake using a VanDorn sampling system. Dissolved Oxygen, temperature, pH, and conductivity values are collected using a YSI system (ProDSS). Nearshore Samples (ex. RVL37-1, RVL26-A) are collected in the near shore waters in approximately 1m of water.
Data Collection Processing
All data is reviewed prior to upload into the system. Inaccurate or non-representative values are flagged and/or removed from the data prior to upload.
