Georgian Bay water quality

Georgian Bay water quality 135 locations from Killarney to Honey Harbour were surveyed between 2003 and 2005 (3 times a year representing spring, summer and fall conditions) across a spectrum of environments along the eastern coast of Georgian Bay. The purposes include to: * identify the range of natural variability in water quality conditions in the coastal areas * better understand the interactions between the watershed and the open waters of Georgian Bay on water quality * provide insight on the human effects on water quality This information is used to establish a baseline to which future water quality conditions can be compared and to identify the factor(s) responsible for variable water quality conditions. 2022-07-06 Government of Ontario Nature and EnvironmentEnvironment and Natural ResourcesEnvironment and energy 2003-2005 DataZIP https://files.ontario.ca/moe_mapping/downloads/2Water/Georgian_Bay_Water_Quality_2003_2005_Data.zip ShapefileZIP https://files.ontario.ca/moe_mapping/downloads/2Water/Georgian_Bay_Water_Quality_2003_2005_Shape.zip Metadata recordPDF https://files.ontario.ca/moe_mapping/downloads/metadata/opendata/gbwq_metadata.pdf Original metadata (https://data.ontario.ca)HTML https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/e5776de7-7e2f-40de-a577-2c80b619928b Original metadata (https://data.ontario.ca/fr)HTML https://data.ontario.ca/fr/dataset/e5776de7-7e2f-40de-a577-2c80b619928b
