Third Level Assessment – Aquatic and Riparian Habitat Assessment

Water Quality

Water quality on Anagance River has been monitored by the Petitcodiac Watershed Alliance as part of their basin wide water monitoring program, which has data going back to 2005. The 2021 results are presented in Table 2 (Petitcodiac Watershed Alliance 2022). The PWA maintains a fixed monitoring site at the Mill Road bridge over the Anagance River just above its mouth.  Other relevant sites for water as it enters the main stem are available from: North River (Route 885 Bridge);  Little River (Route 112 Bridge); Pollett River (Powers Pitt Road); and the main stem (112 Bridge over the Petitcodiac in Salisbury). . Being a single site within this portion of the watershed and taken as a series of snap shots in time there is a limited amount that can be concluded from it. However, considered together with these other sites more can be gained.    The fact this location has been monitored continuously by the PWA for years also provides significant time depth.
