Huron-Erie Corridor Monitoring Program

This long running program seeks to develop a Modelling and   Management Framework for the Huron-Erie corridor to link spatial   patterns of water and sediment contamination with beneficial use   impairments (BUI's) and delisting criteria associated with the two   Remedial Action Plans (RAPs) bounding the study system. A key focus   of our investigation will be to make recommendations for management   options that directly affect sport fish consumption advisories, one   of the BUI's consistently identified as a critical concern by local   public stakeholders.     This project has mapped water (mussel biomonitors), sediment (PCBs,   PAHs, trace elements and Hg) and forage fish contamination in the   St. Clair and Detroit Rivers and Lake St. Clair. Researchers are   currently working with Michigan Sea-Grant and OMNR (Dr. Yingming   Zhou) to model sport fish consumption advisories issued for walleye   through development of spatially explicit bioaccumulation models   that consider not only water and sediment chemistry but also spatial   movements of fish through the corridor.     (sediment); (fish consumption); (fish consumption advisory); (fish   consumption advisories); (BUI); (BUI's); (BUIs); (RAP); (RAP's);   (RAPs); (remedial action plan); (remedial action plans); (beneficial   use impairment); (mussels); (sediments); (mussel); (PCBs); (PCB's);   (PCB); (polychlorinated biphenyl); (polychlorinated biphenyls);   (PAH); (PAH's); (PAHs); (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons);   (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon); (Hg); (mercury); (walleye);   (Sander vitreus vitreus)
