Through this project, we are monitoring the water quality in the Cocagne Bay estuary. We want to identify small streams that have problematic bacteria and nutrients levels in our watershed.

This project was obtained by the Gulf of St. Lawrence Coalition to monitor small streams flowing into the Gulf. The objective is to identify streams and problem areas that may be causing elevated levels of E.coli, nitrates and phosphates in the Gulf.

In collaboration with the Southeast Recreational Anglers Association, we monitored 9 sites in the Cocagne River watershed, Bouctouche and Chockpish. See the map and results here.
