Baseline Water Quality Research on New Brunswick Streams

There is potential for unconventional (shale) gas development in the south-central part of New Brunswick as reflected by the current distribution of oil and gas land holdings in the province. The target area for this research is streams near Sussex and Elgin, NB, where the potential for natural gas development in the near term is deemed highest. The project duration is expected to be between 12 and 24 months with a potential start date of August 2014.
