This report summarizes results of monitoring for toxic contaminants and trace metals in the Niagara River between 1975 and 1982.
Since 1983, the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation, and Parks monitored contaminants in the Niagara River using caged mussels and (more recently) semi-permeable membrane devices. This report summarizes data collected in 2015 which was aimed at identifying sources of contaminants specific to the Niagara River.
