The IRDA team is monitoring the hydrology of the three main watersheds in Saint-Zotique (Grand Marais, Ruisseau Six Arpents, and Ruisseau Dix-huit Arpents). The team has been conducting ongoing hydrometric monitoring using acoustic, barometric, and multi-parameter (conductivity and turbidity) probes, as well as collecting and analyzing water samples and estimating surface and underground flow rates and sediment and nutrient flows since June 2016. The project will continue till 2019.
From 2016 to 2019
This project will provide the municipality of Saint-Zotique with a snapshot of the health of its waterways.
