The team at IRDA conducted hydrological monitoring on Branch 1 of the Campbell Stream (test basin) as well as the stream’s main branch, which was used as a control. The team used multi-parameter probes (conductivity and turbidity), collected and analyzed water samples, and estimated separate flow rates (surface/underground) and sediment and nutrient flows.
From 2014 to 2017
IRDA also fulfils mandates for municipalities and government agencies looking to protect their drinking water intakes and recreational waters.

The project consisted of monitoring the hydrology of the main watercourses flowing into Lac Boivin to determine their flow rates and sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus inputs to the lake.
