Threats to Ecosystems - Industrial Discharge Sites

Threats to Ecosystems - Industrial Discharge Sites Industrial activities generate waste that is discharged into water bodies, the air or ends up in landfill sites. Air is the most common release medium. Ammonia, methanol, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide are by far the most common industrial pollutants released in Canada. Industrial discharge sites are concentrated in southern Ontario and Quebec, and around major cities in British Columbia and the Prairies. The map shows the number of industrial discharge sites per ecoregion. 2022-03-14 Natural Resources Canada geoinfo@nrcan.gc.ca Economics and IndustryInformation and Communicationsecologyenvironmentindustrymap Download the English JP2 File through HTTPJP2 https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6375_threats_to_ecosystems_industrial_discharge_sites.jp2 Download the English ZIP (PDF,JPG) file through HTTPZIP https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6375_threats_to_ecosystems_industrial_discharge_sites.zip Download the French JP2 File through HTTPother https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6375_menaces_ecosystemes_sites_rejets_industriels.jp2 Download the French ZIP (PDF, JPG) File through HTTPZIP https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6375_menaces_ecosystemes_sites_rejets_industriels.zip
