Rideau Valley-Baseline WQ

Map and Visualize

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.
