DSR Enews: June 2017
  A word from the DSR... 
Summer has finally arrived but high water from heavy spring rains continues to be an issue for the entire Lake Ontario watershed. In the Salmon River estuary, water is still several feet above normal, blanketing the islands and making the lower end of the DSR difficult to access. Forecasters predict lake levels to drop by one inch per week, so we are keeping our fingers crossed that conditions are favorable by the time salmon begin to migrate upstream. Of course, we will keep you updated as soon as we see the first signs of activity. August will be here before we know it, fish on!

  DSR Happenings     
On June 7, 2017, DSR manager, Garrett Brancy, attended the 2017 Eastern Lake Ontario Invasive Species Symposium organized by SLELO PRISM as part of DSR's ongoing commitment to respect the environment and manage our land, water and wildlife resources sustainably. DSR was proud to be one of the primary donor's for this event, which brought together industry experts and biologists to showcase the latest research on local invasive species, and the equipment and processes used to monitor their spread. 
     "This is a great event to learn about the invasive species that impact the DSR. One of the most interesting things I learned was a new regulation being enacted that requires ships to treat their ballast water prior to releasing into the Great Lakes. It came as a surprise that this was not already being done!"
     Garrett also brought back information on new technology that uses water samples to analyze environmental DNA  as a means of early detection for aquatic invasive species.
