Executing a Long-Term Watershed Monitoring Plan for the West Fundy Composite Level 1 Watershed

Map and Visualize

Eastern Charlotte Waterways Inc. (ECW) created an integrated watershed management plan (2020). This plan utilized multiple parameters under three broad categories, biomonitoring, physiochemical, and hydromorphological, to assess the state of watersheds in New Brunswick. This project aims to assess the plan created by ECW to determine whether the chosen parameters and the staff, time, and equipment necessary to monitor those parameters achieve their purpose in the most efficient way possible. This project also aims to add one year of data to the baseline dataset for the West Fundy Composite level 1 watershed. Eleven sites were
monitored in the four major rivers in the West Fundy Composite level 1 watershed: the Magaguadavic River, Digdeguash River, Lepreau River, and New River. On each river, a site was established in the upper reaches, the mouth, and a central point in order to get an understanding of water quality in the largest portion of the river.

Data Collection Information

A YSI Professional Plus was utilized to measure basic water quality parameters (Dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, conductivity) on a monthly basis. While taking the YSI measurements, a water sample was collected and tested at the ECW laboratory for Escherichia coli (E. coli) and total coliform levels. Metals and nutrient analysis was completed on a bi-monthly basis to assess seasonal changes in a full suite of metals and nutrients.
