Water levels in the Old Ausable Channel (OAC) fluctuate due to many factors (rain, snow, groundwater, level control structures, such as culverts and beavers). To support monitoring and management activities, ABCA reviewed water level information from 2011 and installed gauges or benchmarks at all road crossing. Consistent information will help to identify ‘ideal’ levels for the protected habitat.
The ABCA would like to thank the community, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and Ontario Parks for their support in undertaking this project.
