They generally contain environmental data, and may have interpretive sections. Some documents contain copies of government permits and associated correspondence. The collection is arranged in five primary research subjects: Pulp and Paper Mills, Toxicolocy, Victoria Sewage, Coast and Island Mines, and Regional Collections. Each subject is divided into case studies. Within each case study, documents are arranged in alphabetical order by author.

This material makes reference to extensive dried plant and light microscope slide collections (mainly of North Atlantic, and Pacific Northwest marine plants) deposited in the Biology Department, University of Victoria.

The Water Quality series documents the evolution and development of the provincial governments Aquatic Plant Management Program (APMP), an innovative and comprehensive preventive and management program. Included are Newroths publications (1978-1994), information on introduced or exotic nuisance aquatic plants and animals in British Columbia fresh water systems, and approximately 100 technical reports on BC water bodies published by the province. The reports on APMP control and monitoring projects are grouped by the following geographic areas: Okanagan Lakes, Kalamalka and Wood Lakes, Cultus Lake, Christina Lake, Brannen Lake, Mara Lake (Little Shuswap), Shuswap Lake, Southern Vancouver Island and Lower Fraser Valley.
