This report provides a descriptive compilation of stream nutrient data collected in Alberta between 1977 and 2013. The purpose was to consolidate information from many diverse sources into one document and to provide a useful reference point for future studies of lake and watershed management in...
The purpose of this report is to summarize all available environmental information for Antler Lake and its watershed. Information on Antler Lake is limited, and as such, this report will provide an initial benchmark upon which to direct future watershed stewardship initiatives and monitoring...
The effects of climate change on water yield on the North Saskatchewan River Basin (NSRB) will affect water use and water management in the basin. There is a need to assess the potential effects so that watershed planners can implement mitigation measures to minimize negative effects. The scope...
This report examines the hydroclimatic data, water use data and a water management model developed in 11 previous studies and makes recommendations on work required to update and/or improve the reliability of the data for future water quantity modeling. (As cited on https://www.nswa.ab.ca/)
This study involved hydrologic, hydraulic, and environmental analyses of the Blackmud and Whitemud Creek basins to develop a stormwater management strategy to accommodate future development in the basin. (As cited in executive summary.) Report includes 7 files: Final report--Technical Memorandum...
The purpose of the Background Study is to determine whether the North Saskatchewan River meets the established CHRS selection criteria and integrity criteria to be nominated as a Canadian Heritage River. Because the North Saskatchewan River was identified as an “A List” river, with the second...
The overall goal of this project was to develop two land cover products, each for a different purpose. The first product is a large-scale, high thematic resolution land cover layer that covers the areas of the North Saskatchewan and Battle River watersheds that are outside the mountain parks, as...
The NSWA engaged the ALCES© Group to undertake a high-level, strategic and exploratory cumulative effects modeling for the NSRB. Specifically, the NSWA-ALCES© cumulative effects assessment project is intended to simulate the effects of major land uses in the watershed (agriculture, forestry,...
A starting point in effective water management is to understand the extent to which Alberta’s water resources have already been committed to human and economic activity. How much water has been allocated? How much is currently being used? The answers to these questions are fundamental to the...
The objective of this study was to provide preliminary estimates of the value of services being provided by ecosystems and the value of economic activity for each of the sub-basins in the NRSB. The intent of this report is to provide some initial background information on the relative importance...
