Wild Amphibian and Wetland Health and Contaminants, Oil Sands Region

Water chemistry and 26 different metals were measured at 21 wetland sites where studies of amphibian health are being monitored. Water chemistry measurements (pH, conductivity, total dissolved solids, etc.) assess water quality, characterize the wetlands studied and allow for comparisons among the different types of wetlands monitored.

The data show low concentrations of metals, with many metals undetectable. Two water quality samples, one from 2011 (8.27 µg\/L) and one from 2012 (6.47 µg\/L) from Galoot Lake, located in the Peace-Athabasca Delta, exceeded the guideline for arsenic established for the protection of aquatic life by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME). However, samples collected from this same location in 2013 (1.29 and 0.78 µg\/L) and 2014 (2.21 µg\/L) were below the CCME guideline.
