Cape Tormentine Peninsula Watershed Water Quality Monitoring

Map and Visualize

EOS Eco-Energy is a small charitable organization based in Sackville, New Brunswick. In 2017, EOS established the Chignecto Watersheds Monitoring Program. This programs aims to maintain the long-term sustainability of our local watersheds by promoting watershed awareness through citizen science & public education, conducting long-term water quality monitoring, and performing subsequent restoration and protection activities. Water quality data is collected using a Hanna Multiparameter Meter (HI9828) for in-situ measurements, and grab samples are sent to RPC Moncton for laboratory analysis. This project would not be possible without our main funder, the New Brunswick Environmental Trust Fund.

Data Collection Information

A Hanna Multiparameter Meter (HI9828) is used to measure in-situ water quality parameters (temperature, DO, pH, specific conductivity, salinity, and TDS) at all sampling locations from May to October. To assess additional surface water parameters (nutrients, major ions, trace metals, and bacteria), a grab sample of water is collected (800 mL) and sent to RPC Moncton for analysis. Monitoring activities follow the New Brunswick Department of Environment and Local Government "Guidelines for River Sample Collection and Lab Submission for Watershed Groups in New Brunswick" document.

1. Add MonitoringLocationID 2. Add ResultValueType 3. Change ResultUnit for CharacteristicName ‘Salinity’ to PSU 4. Add LaboratoryName for bacteria data rows 5. When ActivityType starts with 'Sample’ OR 'Quality Control Sample-Blind Duplicate', add 'Calculated' to ResultAnalyticalMethodName column for calculated parameters 6. ResultDetectionQuantitationLimitType change ‘Lower Reporting Limit’ and ‘Sample Detection Limit’ to ‘Reporting Limit’ 7. ‘Ammonia’ listed as a 'calculated' parameter - amend to 'actual' since method is provided 8. ‘Nitrate’ rows - remove method as this parameter is calculated 9. Add leading zero to ActivityStartTime
