Observers of the Mill River Estuary (MRE) in Western PEI have noted deterioration in the health of the ecosystem during the last several decades. Algal blooms have increased in frequency and intensity, and instances of toxic algal blooms and oxygen depletion have been recorded.
The study examined the effects of bridges and causeways, sediment inputs, and nutrient inputs on water quality, and how changes could be made to these to improve conditions in the river. It then provided an optimized strategy, or particular combination of changes which would provide the most...
10 Points to Purity - what we'll do and when we'll do it
Eutrophication caused by nutrient enrichment is one of the leading causes of water quality impairment within coastal marine environments (NRC, 2000). Eutrophication in coastal systems is manifested as the occurrence of toxic or nuisance phytoplankton blooms, prolific growth of certain short-lived...
This report is intended to provide an overview of the current state of the Province's groundwater, fresh surface water and estuarine resources, as well as highlight any notable changes in water quality over the available period of record.
