St. Marys River Water Quality Sampling Project

The Remedial Action Plan team at Algoma University is currently conducting a three-year study (2013-2016) of water quality which is being funded by Environment Canada and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. River water samples are being analyzed and detailed field observations taken, in order to help determine if the beneficial use impairments: (1) degradation of aesthetics and (2) eutrophication or undesirable algae, are still present in the Canadian portion of the St. Marys River Area of Concern.

The Water Quality Study – Year 1 Technical Report (March 2014) is now available!
