Severn Sound Stream Sampling

SSEA is an active partner in the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, Provincial Water Quality Monitoring Network.

Grab samples are collected from 12 strategically placed stream stations, eight times each year. The water samples are then sent to the MOE lab for analysis of several parameters including turbidity and concentrations of Total Phosphorus, Chlorides and Nitrates. The resulting data are used in assessing the quality of surface water entering the Sound from watercourses and the development of long term water quality trends
