Description

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.

Objective(s)

  • Evaluating the effect of a combination of innovative methods for managing watercourses and their banks to improve water quality.

From 2014 to 2017
