Description

As part of a collaborative effort to restore and protect Lac Boivin in Granby, this project will assist with the ongoing hydrometric monitoring of the flux and quality of water in Ruisseau Bouchard. It will use spatial flood sampling to help characterize water quality in three of the stream’s sub-watersheds.

Objective(s)

  • Describe the sediment and nutrient fluxes at the Ruisseau Bouchard watershed outlet.
  • Measure and compare fluxes from various areas within the Ruisseau Bouchard watershed.

From 2019 to 2020

Project duration

Water protection

Service

IRDA has monitored and tested around 30 microwatersheds over the past two decades.

Partner
