A Comparison of Two Laboratory Methods for Determining Sediment Organic Carbon Content in PEI Habours
A Comparison of Two Laboratory Methods for Determining Sediment Organic Carbon Content in PEI Harbours January, 1999. Kendall R. Shaw, PEI Department of Technology and Environment Charlottetown, PEI
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.
Many estuaries throughout Prince Edward Island support a vibrant mussel (Mytilus edulis L.) aquaculture industry, producing in excess of 8800 tonnes annually. P.E.I. estuaries are abundant in phytoplankton, have good water exchange and are well sheltered from prevailing winds which make them ideal...
Flowing freshwaters support a rich diversity of life that includes fishes, insects, and plants, as well as other animals such as bats and birds that can depend on the food resources generated by freshwaters. This diversity of life is our best measure of the health of the stream environments....
Estuaries are highly productive systems and typically contain a large biomass of algae, sea grasses and phytoplankton (McComb 1995). The estuaries of Prince Edward Island (PEI) are generally small, narrow, shallow bodies of water. Many empty into coastal embayments, thus have limited exchange with...
The Action Committee for Sustainable Land Management was established to examine the most recent fish kill at Barclay Brook and answer why current measures continue to fail to protect streams and rivers. The Action Committee assessed such factors as non-agricultural runoff, stream flow trends,...
