Tara George of the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change presents on phytoplankton and zooplankton populations at the January 20th Lakehead University meeting of the Public Advisory Committee to the Thunder Bay Remedial Action Plan.

A well attended meeting of theĀ  Public Advisory Committee to the Thunder Bay Remedial Action Plan took place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 20th at Lakehead University. At the meeting, Tara George of the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change presented new information about phytoplankton and zooplankton populations. The PAC supported Tara’s assessment, opting to remove plankton from the list of impairments in the Thunder Bay Area of Concern. This decision was based on the rationale that there had been no scientific determination that plankton populations were impaired in the first place. Additionally, with several sources of pollution having been resolved since inception of the RAP program, Tara pointed out that environmental conditions for plankton were much more favourable. The Northern Wood habitat project and Slate River watershed management plan were also discussed. The presentation on phytoplankton and zooplankton populations provided by Tara George is accessible below:
