Found 10 records similar to Reducing phosphorus loads to Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay – Cumulative, estimated reduction in the amount of phosphorus reaching Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay due to stewardship projects

Federal

Off shore waters of Georgian Bay rarely experience excessive nutrient concentrations however, small embayments such as Honey Harbour, North and South Bay have experienced oxygen depletion, increased total phosphorus, a decrease in water clarity and the presence of filamentous attached algae. Low water levels in southern Georgian Bay along with temperature and hydrologic changes represent additional water quality and aquatic habitat management challenges.To address these issues the Government of Canada initiated the Lake Simcoe / South-eastern Georgian Bay Clean-Up Fund. The Fund supports various projects to improve conditions and supports science efforts to advance understanding of these conditions. Here we present water quality and physical data to investigate the causes and consequences of oxygen depletion and characterize phosphorus.

The coast of South-Eastern Georgian Bay has numerous bays and inlets. This area is an important resource for drinking water, recreation and fish habitat. While offshore water quality of Georgian Bay is not impaired, nearshore embayments and inlets, in some instances, have been reported to experience water quality degradation. Concerns include excess nutrients, increased frequency of cyanobacteria blooms and hypoxia.

Lake Simcoe is located North of Toronto in Ontario, Canada and is a premier destination for tourists generating $200 million in revenue annually. Lake Simcoe is the 4th largest lake in Ontario with a surface area of 722 square kilometers and a watershed of 2900 square kilometers. Lake Simcoe has been negatively impacted by anthropogenic activity since the 1930's. In 2007, the Lake Simcoe Cleanup Fund was created to address increased phosphorus inputs, reproductive failure of the cold water fishery, nuisance aquatic plant growth and invasive species.Here we present nutrient and sediment data that was collected to inform decisions pertaining to the restoration of Lake Simcoe.

The Lake Simcoe lake monitoring program provides measurements of chemical and physical water quality limits such as total phosphorus, nitrogen, chlorophyll a, pH, alkalinity, conductivity, dissolved organic and inorganic carbon, silica, other ions, water transparency, temperature and dissolved oxygen. Samples are collected biweekly during the spring, summer and fall. *[pH]: potential of hydrogen

High grade, bedded barite deposits occur in upper Paleozoic sedimentary rocks of the Earn Group in south-eastern Niddery Lake map area. Following discovery and initial exploration of the TEA claims, the present owners have carried the property to the production stage through the construction, machine assembly and test operation of a beneficiation mill at Ross River. The following conclusions were made by this study: 1- A bedded barite deposit has been identified on the TEA property in the Selwyn Mountains of the Yukon. It is of suitable tonnage to support any likely scale of production (5000 to 10,000 tonnes per year) for at least 25 years.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Phosphorus levels in the offshore waters of the Great Lakes indicator reports total phosphorus levels in the offshore waters of the 4 Canadian Great Lakes. A lake's phosphorus status is determined by comparing spring total phosphorus levels to its water quality objectives and the health of the lake's food web. Failure to meet a water quality objective for phosphorus suggests a greater risk to the health of the lake ecosystems.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Phosphorus and nitrogen levels in Lake Winnipeg indicator reports on the status of total phosphorus and total nitrogen levels in Lake Winnipeg and its 3 largest tributaries: the Red, Saskatchewan and Winnipeg rivers. The indicator assumes that water in the region would never be above phosphorus and nitrogen water quality criteria or objectives in the absence of human development. It provides information about how human activity contributes to phosphorus and nitrogen levels in lakes and rivers.
