Lunenburg Harbour Water Monitoring

 

In addition to the weekly waterfront monitoring sites, Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation is monitoring five other sites established throughout the harbour for bacteria, nutrients (phosphorus and nitrogen), Secchi disk depth (an indicator of water clarity), and several in-situ parameters including dissolved oxygen, water temperature, and total dissolved solids.
