Median values of monthly maximum turbidity in raw surface water sources by drainage region, 2013 This product provides the median of monthly maximum turbidity values (in nephelometric turbidity units) for drinking water facilities by drainage region. Turbidity refers to the relative cloudiness of water, caused by suspended particles in water. The Survey of Drinking Water Plants collected this monthly maximum turbidity data for surface water sources from facilities reporting turbidity data for at least 10 months in 2013. These facilities served 24 million people and produced 4,091 million cubic metres of potable water from surface water sources in 2013. Source water turbidity was monitored continuously at 42% of these drinking water plants in 2013, daily at 34% of plants and less frequently at the remaining plants. 2017-03-21 2019-09-17 Statistics Canada francois.soulard@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentTurbidityGeographic dataSurface waterWaterFresh waterWater qualityWater supply Turbidity by drainage region spatial data files (Bilingual)FGDB/GDB http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/statcan_statcan/Fresh-water_Eau-douce/freshwater-turbidity_turbidite-eau-douce/Freshwater_Eau_douce_Canada.gdb.zip Median values of monthly maximum turbidity in raw surface water sources by drainage region, 2013, release in Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada (map) (English)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/2017000/sec-2/m-c/m-c-2.3-eng.htm Median values of monthly maximum turbidity in raw surface water sources by drainage region, 2013, release in Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada (map) (French)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/2017000/sec-2/m-c/m-c-2.3-fra.htm Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (English)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-eng.htm Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (French)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-fra.htm Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (English)PDF http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-eng.pdf Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (French)PDF http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-fra.pdf Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada, release in the The Daily, Statistics Canada’s official release bulletin (overview) (English)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170321/dq170321b-eng.htm Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada, release in the The Daily, Statistics Canada’s official release bulletin (overview) (French)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170321/dq170321b-fra.htm Median values of monthly maximum turbidity in raw surface water sources by drainage region, 2013WMS https://webservices.maps.canada.ca/arcgis/services/StatCan/Freshwater_Turbidity_En/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Median values of monthly maximum turbidity in raw surface water sources by drainage region, 2013WMS https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/services/StatCan/Freshwater_Turbidity_Fr/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Median values of monthly maximum turbidity in raw surface water sources by drainage region, 2013ESRI REST https://webservices.maps.canada.ca/arcgis/rest/services/StatCan/Freshwater_Turbidity_En/MapServer/0 Median values of monthly maximum turbidity in raw surface water sources by drainage region, 2013ESRI REST https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/rest/services/StatCan/Freshwater_Turbidity_Fr/MapServer/0 Survey of Drinking Water Plants metadata information (English)HTML http://www23.statcan.gc.ca/imdb/p2SV.pl?Function=getSurvey&SDDS=5149 Survey of Drinking Water Plants metadata information (French)HTML http://www23.statcan.gc.ca/imdb/p2SV_f.pl?Function=getSurvey&SDDS=5149
