The application of an interdisciplinary approach to the selection of potential water quality sampling sites in the Wabigoon River Basin : a report / by Geomatics International.: En39-141/1990E-PDF
"The Wabigoon River basin is one of 13 Ontario river basins being evaluated for Environment Canada’s proposed National Reference Network (NRN) for water quality. The purpose of this study is to provide reference documents which summarize the influences of ecological diversity and human activity on water quality, and to provide a framework with which potential water quality monitoring sites can be selected to address specific federal water quality issues. Issues identified for the NRN are: agricultural and cultural eutrophication, agricultural pesticides, urbanization, acid rain, pristine/baseline, and development resource extraction. Stations are being located to monitor appropriate issues within sub-basins of each watershed. Other basins being examined are the Shamattawa, Kwataboahegan, Seine, Goulais, White, Blanche, Magnetawan, Thames, Grand, Saugeen, Rouge and the South Nation"--Executive Summary.
