CBM In Action: East Interlake Conservation District
July 31, 2019
Water monitoring groups of all shapes and sizes are taking action to protect rivers, lakes and wetlands. These are the amazing people and initiatives that inspire us to do the work we do here at DataStream.
In this video Armand Belanger of East Interlake Conservation District talks about the work his organization is doing to protect water quality in the Lake Winnipeg region.
I’m really excited to be part of the movement that shows a compassion towards the ecology and the state of our lake.
The East Interlake Conservation District samples monitoring sites in collaboration with the Lake Winnipeg Foundation. Explore East Interlake Conservation District's results on DataStream.

CBM In Action: Lake Winnipeg Community-Based Monitoring Network
The Lake Winnipeg Community-Based Monitoring Network (LWCBMN) was launched in fall 2015. Supported by the Lake Winnipeg Foundation ’s Science Advisory Council, this growing network engages citizen volunteers to collect water samples across Manitoba using scientifically vetted protocols. Samples are then analyzed in a lab to measure phosphorus concentration and calculate the amount of phosphorus being exported off the landscape.
