CCME Protocols Manual for Water Quality Monitoring in Canada

The province has adopted the protocols outlined in this manual (2.6 MB) for the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Water Quality Monitoring Agreement sampling program. An appendix (82 KB) to the manual has been developed to include documents which apply specifically to the Newfoundland and Labrador ambient water quality monitoring program. The manual was prepared to provide Canada-wide consistency in water quality monitoring.

Flooding and Hydrology

  • Flood Risk Mapping
    In Newfoundland and Labrador, we try to discourage flood-vulnerable development on flood plains. The province, in cooperation with the federal government, undertook hydrotechnical studies and mapping of flood risk areas. The maps, completed for 38 communities,delineate the flood risk zones for floods with a return period of 20 years (5% chance in any year) and 100 years (1% chance in any year).
