This dataset includes information on biological communities in lakes and streams across Ontario since 1976. Biological communities sampled include: * crayfish Data were collected as part of routine monitoring of water quality of inland waters and for scientific and research purposes.
This data set includes information on sampling locations and physical conditions in lakes and streams across Ontario. It also includes meteorological conditions from monitoring stations in south-central Ontario. Lakes The data for lakes includes sampling location details and measurements such as: * temperature * dissolved oxygen levels * water transparency Streams The data for streams includes measurements such as stream flow discharge from monitoring stations in south-central Ontario. Meteorological conditions This dataset contains meteorological conditions for climate stations close to monitored lakes in south-central Ontario.
Get data about the water quality for Ontario's inland lakes. The data is collected through volunteer monitoring efforts – citizen science. The Lake Partner Program (LPP) measures water quality in inland lakes across Ontario. This dataset provides water quality and water clarity data, as well as data on the concentrations of: * total phosphorus * calcium Spatial information for lake monitoring locations across Ontario are also available.
Ontario has a comprehensive set of measures and regulations to help ensure the safety of drinking water. The following dataset contains information about the drinking water systems, laboratories and facilities the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks is responsible for monitoring to ensure compliance with Ontario's drinking water laws. The dataset includes information about: * the number and type of registered systems and laboratories * drinking water quality test results * adverse water quality incidents * activities to support reduced lead in drinking water * enforcement activities related to inspections * orders and convictions * system operator certification
Data is collected each year, according to the lake-by-lake cycle. Information includes: * water chemistry * approximately 60 index and reference stations throughout the Great Lakes basin
135 locations from Killarney to Honey Harbour were surveyed between 2003 and 2005 (3 times a year representing spring, summer and fall conditions) across a spectrum of environments along the eastern coast of Georgian Bay. The purposes include to: * identify the range of natural variability in water quality conditions in the coastal areas * better understand the interactions between the watershed and the open waters of Georgian Bay on water quality * provide insight on the human effects on water quality This information is used to establish a baseline to which future water quality conditions can be compared and to identify the factor(s) responsible for variable water quality conditions.
Companies or organizations who take over 50,000 litres of water/day from a lake, river, stream or groundwater source, must obtain a Permit to Take Water from the Ministry of the Environment -with a few exceptions. Permit holders are legally required to record how much water they take each day. Data includes: * purpose * location * water source (e.g., ground or surface) * maximum amount allowed per day * permit number * expiry date of the permit Permitted water-taking map Create a map for a water-taking application
The park monitors water quality of streams and ponds (lakes) on a triennial cycle, reporting on total organic carbon, acidity, phosphorus, nitrogen, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and Chlorophyll A. These metrics are compiled into a water quality index (WQI) that summarizes overall water quality.
Bruce Peninsula National Park monitors trends and exceedance in water quality index by sampling for nutrients, major ions, and metals in two lakes and two rivers throughout the year.
The Municipal Performance Measurement Program collects municipal services data on an annual basis as a part of the Financial Information Return. The data measures performance related to: * municipal fire departments * police * roadways * transit * wastewater * storm water * drinking water * solid waste management * parks and recreation * library services * land-use planning * building services
