Water Quality of Farm Reservoirs
Investigating water quality issues associated with elevated algal growth, cyanotoxin production, high sulfate levels causing increased salinity, and other contaminants, in dugouts in Saskatchewan.
Water quality of small farm ponds is frequently threatened due to elevated algal growth and associated cyanotoxin production, high sulfate levels causing increased salinity, and other contaminants. We are investigating the prevalence and persistence of these water quality issues in dugouts in Saskatchewan and aim to identify underlying mechanisms. Using landscape and in-pond sampling, we are identifying the drivers of water quality and using this information to predict future changes, and target potential mitigation opportunities.
