Petite Riviere Lakes and Headwaters Dataset

Map and Visualize

The Petite Riviere Water Quality Program has added this secondary complementary program to monitor water quality within the headwaters of Millipsigate Lake, Hebb Lake, and Minamkeak Lake, and within each of the lakes, to assess and mitigate harm to the environment and aquatic organisms within the watershed. This program is funded by the Habitat Stewardship Program.

Data Collection Information

A YSI Pro-DSS and Pro Plus are used to collect the water's physical characteristics in situ. The probe's pH and conductivity are calibrated monthly, while DO% is calibrated once before each field day, and twice-more throughout the sample collection. All chemical samples are sent to an accredited laboratory for analysis, where samples are also subject to the lab's QAQC. Samples are held on ice until delivery to the lab - within 24 hours of collection.
