    The Niagara River 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 Niagara River is a 58-km waterway connecting Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The Canadian section of the Niagara River Area of Concern extends along the entire length of the Canadian side of the Niagara River, and includes the Canadian side of Niagara Falls and the Welland River watershed.

    This dataset contains the fish health metrics (length, weight, gonad size, etc.) for White Sucker (Catostomus commersonii) collected from three site locations (Kaministiquia river, Kaministiquia river downstream and Little Gravel river used as a reference site) within the Thunder Bay Area of Concern for 2007.

    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. Water quality data and water movement data will contribute towards a knowledge base for evaluating the status of and delisting Bay of Quinte as an Area of Concern, as well as provide a measure of the ecological response to remedial efforts. The data are phosphorus concentrations at the Bay of Quinte (Ontario) for 10 stations from 2015 to 2018.

    This dataset contains the fish health metrics (length, weight, gonad size, etc.) for Shorthead redhorse (Moxostoma macrolepidotum) and Golden redhorse (Moxostoma erythrurum) collected from two site locations (Stag Island, and Lake Huron) within the St. Clair River Area of Concern for 2003 .

    The St. Clair 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 St. Clair River, a key shipping channel in the Great Lakes Seaway system, flows 64 km from Lake Huron to Lake St. Clair. The Area of Concern covers 3350 km2 (335 000 ha).

    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. The area’s watershed is drained by the Kaministiquia River system and a number of smaller rivers and creeks. The marsh area of the harbour represents a major portion of wetlands in the Lake Superior basin in Canada, providing habitat for nesting and migrating species of birds and a wide variety of fish.
