Mill Lake Stream (Charlotte County, New Brunswick) : environmental conditions during the summer of 2016 / by Daniel Caissie and Fernand Savoie.: Fs97-13/1278E-PDF

"The present study presents hydrological and meteorological data during the summer 2016 for Mill Lake Stream, which is a 220 m stretch of stream that joins Mill Lake and Lake Utopia near St. George (New Brunswick). Mill Lake Stream has a unique population of Rainbow Smelt (Osmerus mordax) that was designated as Threatened in 2008 by the Committee of the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC). Rainbow Smelt inhabiting Lake Utopia and associated waters consists of two co-existing morphologically, ecologically, and genetically differentiated populations that are referred as Lake Utopia Rainbow Smelt. During the summer of 2016, hourly water temperatures, air temperatures and water levels were monitored between May 18 and October 13. River discharge was also monitored during site visits as well as water velocities within a culvert located at the mouth of the stream. Maximum recorded temperature over the summer period was 28°C in Mill Lake Stream and the maximum recorded velocity in the culvert was 1.1 m/s"--Abstract, p. v.
