The Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council has completed a two year assessment of the tributaries of Lake Charlevoix, including the Boyne River where three sites were monitored for water quality on 12 occasions during 2013 and 2014.  Notable findings of concern included high nitrogen concentrations in the South Branch of the Boyne River and high water temperatures at Old City Park and on the South Branch which may threaten the river’s cold water fishery.  To review the entire study, which can be found at the Tip of the Mit’s website, click here.
