Souris and Area Wildlife Branch Stream Water Data
Souris and Area Wildlife Branch installs data loggers in many of our watershed systems where we implement large amounts of habitat work or where we have done considerable restoration work over the last number of years. Water quality data loggers are also installed in rivers in our management area where future rehabilitation efforts will take place. Loggers are placed in designated stream habitat assessment monitoring sites and in various reaches of our watersheds to help determine the temperature of the water and the amount of light that filters through the water.
Many have been deployed to monitor water temperature to help build a database of water quality for our management area so that we are consistently monitoring specific habitat sites especially headwater areas in our rivers. Headwaters are so important because their stability aids in landscape processes and downstream waters through their influence on the supply, transport, and fate of water and solutes in our watersheds.
Water quality data loggers are meaningful tools in all of our watersheds to aid in monitoring water temperature variations in prime stream reaches, particularly spawning zones so that accurate and appropriate measures may be taken to ensure fish habitat and fish populations are secure and at a healthy level in each of our managed watersheds.
