Title: Water quality monitoring of the Avon River - 1980, 1981
Author: Huber, Douglas M.
Abstract: The Stratford-Avon River Environmental Management Project (SAREMP) was established to further study and determine the best ways of implementing recommendations proposed in the 1979 Ministry report "Impact of Waste Inputs on the Quality of the Avon River". This present report summarizes the routine monitoring data that were collected throughout the basin during the two years of study. Regular monitoring data were collected from May, 1980 to August, 1981 by staff and students of Southwestern Region of the Ministry of the Environment. Althogether 19 stations were sampled throughout the basin in an attempt to assess existing conditions and the relative effects of rural and urban inputs on the water quality of the Avon River. Fifteen stations were sampled during most of 1980, and an additional four (for a total of nineteeen) during late 1980 and 1981. Three continuously recording dissolved oxygen/temperature meters were installed to document fluctuations in dissolved oxygen during the summer months.
