The main objective of this research project is to analyze the low water flows available in the small watersheds of southern Quebec and to develop a method for estimating these flows in the current climate context and in the future climate.
• Carry out a literature review to identify the low/ecological flows related to the free movement of fish and the methods for using these flows;
• Produce a characterization of low water/ecological flows for small watersheds in Quebec;
• Develop a method for estimating low/ecological flows for small ungauged watersheds;
• Adapt the method factors according to climate change scenarios.
From 2020 to 2023
Water protection, Air quality, Soil health
The aim of the project is to support the strategic Québec‒Mexico bilateral expert group on the optimal recovery of residual agricultural, agroindustrial, and forestry biomass.
