Surface Water Quality Monitoring Network Continuous Water Quality Data

The Nova Scotia Automated Surface Water Quality Monitoring Network was established in 2002 to assess water quality in surface waters across the province at five stations (and one discontinued station, St Mary's River).  The results are used to help manage water resources, determine baseline water quality in lakes and watercourses throughout the province, evaluate the impact of human activities on surface water, and assess long term trends in water quality.

The following weblink connects to a Nova Scotia Environment web map that includes the six monitoring station locations within the province and an alternative method for downloading the same datasets:

Querying over HTTP

Splitgraph serves as an HTTP API that lets you run SQL queries directly on this data to power Web applications. For example:

curl \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
{"sql": "
    SELECT *
    FROM \"novascotia-ca/surface-water-quality-monitoring-network-bkfi-mjgw\".\"surface_water_quality_monitoring_network\"
    LIMIT 100 

See the Splitgraph documentation for more information.
