Baseline surface water quality in the Petitot River basin and surrounding watersheds : examining potential impacts of shale gas development in the Horn River basin, British Columbia / S. Pappas, D.P. Shaw,...: En84-147/2017E-PDF
"The report is divided into three sections: Part A, Routine Water Quality Monitoring study objectives were to gain a better understanding of water quality conditions in the Petitot River Basin by collecting baseline data using a standard suite of physical-chemical variables and establishing a representative long-term site. Part B, Synoptic Water Quality Monitoring study objectives were to establish patterns of spatial and temporal water chemistry through synoptic water sampling at high and low flow periods and examine potential relationships between unconventional oil and gas (UOG) activity and surface water quality. Part C, Biological Monitoring study objectives were to establish baseline reference conditions based on benthic macroinvertebrate communities and habitat characteristics, and develop a predictive bioassessment model to assess the ecosystem health of streams in the Liard, Fort Nelson, and Petitot River basins exposed to UOG activity"--Executive summary, page v-vi.
