Description

The project supports the development and operation of two hydrometric stations in the branches of the streams of the Ruisseau aux Castors and Ruisseau Morpions sub-basins, tributaries of the Rivière aux Brochets, in the MRC of Brome-Missisquoi. Hydrometric monitoring will make it possible to continuously describe the evolution of stream flows, as well as their sediment flows, before and after development work.

Objective(s)

The project is part of the concerted actions of the MRC Brome-Missisquoi and the Missisquoi Bay Watershed Organization in the evaluation of new approaches in the development of watercourses in agricultural areas. The main objective of the hydrometric measurement devices put in place is to:

• Detect a response of peak flows and sediment fluxes of the two creeks to innovative irrigation schemes, including two-level flow sections.

From 2020 to 2022
