The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is moving forward with three research studies that will help develop a deeper understanding of ecosystems in the Saugeen watershed, which encompasses the counties of Bruce, Huron, Grey, Dufferin and Wellington, and support broader environmental protection efforts across the region.
A team of biologists and soil scientists will conduct field work in the area as part of a multi-year environmental DNA sampling program. They will track the seasonal presence of local fish, reptiles, amphibians, and mussels, with analysis completed by the University of Guelph’s Hanner Lab. Two shorter-term projects taking place over the summer months will map aquatic habitats and land-based ecological features to better understand the various types of ecosystems present in the study area.
