Federal

Thunder Bay was designated as one of the 43 Areas of Concern in accordance with Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA). Remedial Action Plan (RAP) is an ongoing collaborative effort implemented by federal, provincial, and local governments as well as industry and public partners. There are 3 key stages of the RAP: Stage 1 is a detailed description of the environmental problem; Stage 2 identifies remedial actions and options; Stage 3 is the final document providing evidence that the beneficial uses have been restored and the AOC can be “delisted”. The Thunder Bay Area of Concern extends approximately 28 km along the shoreline of Lake Superior from north of Bare Point south to Flatland Island and up to 9 km offshore, including the Welcome Islands.

This dataset contains the concentrations of halogenated phenolic compounds in plasma for the fish species Brown bullhead (Ameiurus nebulosus), from 4 site locations (Trenton, Deseronto, Belleville, Prince Edward Bay) within the Bay of Quinte Area of Concern. Halogenated Phenolic Compounds have emerged as an important class of environmental contaminants in aquatic vertebrates, wildlife, and humans. They represent 4 of the 7 classes of substances listed as chemicals of mutual concern in the Great Lakes. Supplemental Information

Funding for this study was provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Great Lakes Action Plan (GLAP) and in supportto Bay of Quinte Area of Concern.

This dataset contains the fish health metrics (length, weight, gonad size, etc.) for Brown bullhead (Ameiurus nebulosus) and Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens) collected from three site locations (Queenston, Point Abino, and Black Creek) within the Niagara River Area of Concern for 2004 and 2008. Supplemental Information

Funding for this study was provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Great Lakes Action Plan (GLAP) and in support to Niagara River Area of Concern. In 1987 under the revised Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, 43 areas of concern (AOC), 12 of which are located in Canada, were identified as having severely impaired beneficial uses and water quality.

This dataset contains the concentrations of contaminants found in individual and pooled captured Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens) and Shorthead Redhorse (Moxostoma macrolepidotum) from 5 site locations (Stag Island, Lake Huron, Walpole Marsh, Chanel Ecarte, and Chenal Ecarte/Port Lambton) within the St. Clair River Area of Concern. Supplemental Information

Funding for this study was provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Great Lakes Action Plan (GLAP) and in support to St. Clair River Area of Concern. In 1987 under the revised Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, 43 areas of concern (AOC), 12 of which are located in Canada, were identified as having severely impaired beneficial uses and water quality. As funded by the Great Lakes Action Plan, a Remedial Action Plan was formed for each area of concern bringing together experts from government, industry, municipalities and environmental non-government organizations to address these impacts.

The Bay of Quinte is a long and narrow "Z" shaped inlet located on the northern shore of Lake Ontario. The bay and the surrounding drainage basin were listed as an Area of Concern in 1987 under the GLWQA as 10 of the 14 beneficial use indicators of ecosystem health were deemed impaired. Excess nutrient runoff from agricultural lands, wastewater treatment plants and storm water contributed to extensive algae growth; one of the biggest challenges of the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan was the management of phosphorus loads into the watershed. The goal of this project is to determine the effect of extreme rain events versus base flow on the nutrient levels for two tributaries flowing into the Bay of Quinte.
