Rideau Valley-Baseline WQ
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 Baseline Monitoring Program: Following PWQMN protocols, the baseline program aims to routinely monitor water quality in tributaries across the watershed. Samples are collected at road/stream crossings and analyzed at an external laboratory. Field data is collected using a YSI Probe (ProDSS systems).
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.
