AbstractThe Wetland Water Balance project seeks to develop tools, knowledge, and guidelines to support TRCA's (Toronto and Region Conservation Authority's) stormwater management criteria for water balance analyses where these are required for the protection of wetlands. This includes tools to better characterize the pre-development hydrology of a wetland and the components of the water balance that may contribute to maintenance of important ecological functions. As part of this project, a number of wetlands across TRCA and Credit Valley Conservation jurisdictions have been instrumented to learn how to: a) efficiently characterize baseline conditions, and; b) over the longer-term, develop a better understanding of wetland hydrological functions in the landscape and how these may relate to ecological functions. This presentation will focus on the preliminary results from the regional monitoring study, as well as physical monitoring techniques for characterizing shallow groundwater dynamics in wetlands. This research will help TRCA achieve its objectives of maintaining and enhancing the existing natural heritage system in the watersheds of greater Toronto by informing stormwater management system design and future water resource management decisions.
