RESTORE Current and Completed Projects


Featured Project: Freshwater Salinization Syndrome

Increasing salinization of fresh surface waters due to excessive salt inputs is a growing threat to aquatic ecosystems. Streams with chloride concentrations above the chronic toxicity guideline are pervasive in areas across Canada. Elevated chloride concentrations in freshwaters can alter the function of aquatic organisms, drive stream acidification, mobilize toxic metals, and promote infrastructure corrosion....
