Title: Biological survey of the Moira River
Author: Owen, G. E.; Galloway, D. L.
Abstract: Previous surveys by the Ontario Water Resources Commission have drawn attention to pollution of the Moira River from domestic and industrial waste discharges. Of major importance have been the long-term arsenic contamination of the upper watershed originating at Deloro. domestic waste discharges from the villages of Madoc and Tweed, and thermal and organic pollution of the river by the H. Corby Distillery Limited at Corbyville. A biological survey of the Moira River was undertaken in August of 1967 to further evaluate the effect of these wastes sources on water quality and aquatic biota of the river. Also included was an examination of the water quality of the major tributaries and other reaches of the Moira River to define existing conditions and to provide a baseline for future comparative purposes.
