    Hamilton Harbour is a 2200 ha embayment located at the west end of Lake Ontario It was designated as one of 43 Areas of Concern in 1987 under the GLWQA where 11 beneficial uses of the harbour were deemed impaired. One of the primary recommendations of the Hamilton Harbour Remedial Action Plan was to decrease nutrient loads to Hamilton Harbour and establish water quality targets to decrease undesirable algae, improve water clarity and restore dissolved oxygen levels. This long term data set consists of vertical profiles of various physical parameters collected in Hamilton Harbour since 1987 to measure ecological response of remedial efforts.

    Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler(ADCP) data was collected during the summer months of 2017 in the Randle Reef area of Hamilton Harbor. The data is used to validate a three dimensional MIKE3-FM hydrodynamic and mud transport modeling system. The model is used to study the hydrodynamic circulation, transport and fate of spilled dredged material around Randle Reef area of Hamilton Harbor.

    Hamilton Harbour was designated as one of 43 Areas of Concern in accordance with Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA). Ten out of eleven Beneficial Use Impairments were identified by the Remedial Action Plan (RAP). The 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”. Hamilton Harbour is an approximately 2200 ha embayment connected to the west end of Lake Ontario by a 836 m ship canal. It has a mean depth of 13 m and maximum depth of 24 m. Significant nutrient loadings from three wastewater treatment plants, combined sewer overflows, agriculture, and industry have contributed to severe water quality impairments in Hamilton Harbour. Presented here are various datasets generated to measure the ecological response of the Remediation efforts since 1987.

    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.

    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).
