Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park Lakes Water Quality

Map and Visualize

Lakes were sampled to examine patterns of water quality of lakes in or near the Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park. These data will be used to assess current patterns and serve as a benchmark in future sampling years. Better understanding of aquatic ecosystems within the park can help mitigate potential human effects on the landscape and embedded water bodies.

Data Collection Processing

For 4 sampling locations (Elm Lake, Little Turtle Lake, Loucks Lake and Stouples Lake), depths at which measurements were taken were estimated based on the maximum depths for each lake. Depths were calculated as the maximum depth of the lake in meters minus 1 meter, as samples were taken 1 meter for the bottom.
