This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for finfish (brook and rainbow trout) and shellfish (mussels and soft shell clams) for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. The sampling includes a total of nine rivers that are tested across PEI, with three of the rivers being sampled each year.
Finfish are collected from the river by electrofishing or rod and reel. Shellfish are collected from the same river systems manually, as close to the finfish sampling as possible. The purpose of the sampling is to determine if pesticide residues accumulate in the fish/shellfish.
Groundwater level search results include data from 14 groundwater level observation wells across PEI; mapped locations of observation wells; graphs; and downloadable raw data. The groundwater level data provides long-term trend information, both historical and real-time, on groundwater levels.
Stream level data is available for a number of streams across the province. New Stream level data can be collected from June through September. Those who hold a Water Withdrawal for Irrigation Purposes Permit can use this tool to confirm the water level in Island streams, and to determine whether they may legally draw water for irrigation purposes.
Information collected from the Oyster Monitoring Program. Information includes sample collection site, date, time, water temperature, total oyster larvae, concentration, size range and larvae > 250.
