Description du stage : The intern will work under the PIMCHAS project. The intern will lead the baseline water quality assessment for the 1st subwatershed selected (year 1) of the project. The intern will work directly with the watershed coordinator for PIMCHAS, and potentially with technicians from the local municipalities in the subwatershed.

The intern will :

- co-develop the sampling method;

- conduct the sampling and laboratory analysis;

- and imprtantly analyze the information collected in terms of potential land-water interactions, upstream downstream interactions and concerns in regards to human health. As there is a lack of water quality data at the subwatershed level, the baseline survey will provide the basis for the design of the long term monitoring network.
