Lake Water Quality - Kejimkujik

Lake Water Quality - Kejimkujik Water quality is a globally accepted and widely used measure for assessing and monitoring the condition of freshwater ecosystems. It has a pivotal affect on the integrity of aquatic ecosystems. The physical and chemical characteristics of water have a strong influence on aquatic biota and freshwater ecosystem processes. As a result, changes in water quality may provide an early warning of environmental stress to aquatic ecosystems. The water quality index (WQI) is a tool that was developed by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) to summarize complex water chemistry data to a single index in order to simplify and standardize water quality assessment and reporting across the country. Water samples are taken twice a year at the same location from 18 lakes during June and August. 2019-10-17 Parks Canada jennifer.eaton@pc.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentFreshwaterWater qualityNova Scotia Lake Water Quality - Kejimkujik - Summary Data - 1CSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/ESXBQDIWjrpBpSqPC_cPgfkBjrR0d2UPI9ivxp7paVtj9A Lake Water Quality - Kejimkujik - Data DictionaryCSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/EUyokCj4iDNNtWHm5RM0yVcBP-GRUQpDujqPDQRFy03Avw
