West River Falls

West River

Sheet Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada

A still water pool in a side path of the ranging water of the falls on the West river, alongside the scenic boardwalk created for the tourist information centre at the McPhee House Museum at Sheet Harbour.

The sampling site has quite still water and is easily accessible from the bank, the falls however are very powerful and water is very fast and noisy.
