Water quality monitoring


Renaissance Brome Lake has been monitoring the water quality of the lake’s tributaries since 2005. Over the years several thousand tests have been conducted at various strategic locations in the watershed, on the tributary territories of South Stukely, West Bolton, Canton de Shefford, St-Étienne-de-Bolton and, finally, Ville de Lac-Brome itself.

 In 2014, Renaissance will rationalize its monitoring program and limit the process to six stations all of which are located in the delta of the principal tributaries, Quilliams, McLaughlin, Argyll, Coldbrook, Pearson and Inverness brooks. This represents the minimum standard to evaluate the evolution of the phosphorous content and other suspended materials in the lake. 

The attached map indicates the location of the stations where the water samples will be taken, a process which will consist of eight outings starting in March 2014 and run until November 2014. This effort will allow us to learn about the phosphorous content and suspended materials during the spring thaw, the summer season and the fall rains
