Title: The Upper East Sydenham River watershed water quality study, 1988
Author: Quinlan, Cathleen M.
Abstract: This study was initiated by the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority (SCRCA) in 1987 in response to expressed concerns regarding water quality problems in the upper East Sydenham River watershed. Degraded water quality for recreational use at Coldstream Conservation Area, decreased biological productivity, loss of sport fishing, and occasional fish kills resulting from manure spills prompted the Authority to approach the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) for assistance. The result was a seven month study to monitor the quality of the upper East Sydenham River watershed and to locate the possible sources of the pollution. Funding and technical support were provided by the MOE. This study is the first in a potential series of studies to examine water quality problems throughout the St. Clair Region watersheds.
