Storm Water Pathways

In 2015 we engaged in a project where we started to look at the numerous ways storm water enters our rivers.  Most important to us was the way in which human activity changes the quality and quantity of storm water that enters our rivers.  We have been working with the Town of Hampton in creating an awareness document and campaign that will help us all improve the way in which storm water is handled.  The first step in that process was completed in 2015 with our "Storm Water Pamphlet" series.  We will continue in 2016 to promote this pamphlet and better storm water management approaches.

 

RiverWatch Monitoring

With snow now falling and ice forming on the rivers, our staff have started the RiverWatch and snowpack monitoring exercises.  This means we look to record the dates various rivers freeze up and watch them break up in the spring as well.  We will also be monitoring snow depths and density as well.  All this information is shared with the NB Department of Environment and Local Government so they can generate potential flood warnings.
