This literature review compiles information on salt movement in disturbed soils, particularly in soils that had been disturbed by pipeline construction. The review had two main objectives: to assess climatic and soil conditions under which salts will move out of the root zone in a disturbed soil...
List of Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee Reports
The study was commissioned to establish the scientific rationale for existing wastewater discharge legislation for Alberta East Slopes coal mines. Three water quality parameters - total suspended solids, pH and total iron - and four design flow parameters - applicability of the dam and canal...
A review of pertinent literature was conducted to examine the effects of long term storage on topsoil quality in Alberta in order to determine optimum storage methods and periods of storage. Exhaustive computer data searches were conducted to establish the literature base, which was subsequently...
A Summary of Land Resource and Groundwater Resource Issues Related to Plains Coal Mine Reclamation in AlbertaDownload
Development and extraction of coal resources in Alberta disrupts the landscape and alters two other important resources, land and groundwater. In order to support coal resource development that was economically and environmentally responsible, the Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee...
Physical and Hydrological Characteristics of Ponds in Reclaimed Upland Landscape Settings and Their Impact on Agriculture CapabilityDownload
In 1985, a one hectare pond developed in the upland reclaimed landscape at Vesta Mine in an area where extensive ponding had not previously been observed. Because of the thickness of the spoil, about 20 to 25 m, and the proximity to the active pit, a few hundred metres, it was inferred that the...
Baseline Growth Performance Levels and Assessment Procedures for Commercial Tree Species in Alberta's Mountains and FoothillsDownload
Field work was undertaken on cut-over or burned sites during the summer of 1986 to acquire data on juvenile height development of commercial tree species growing in coal-bearing areas of the Eastern Slopes of Alberta. These data were used to define reasonable expectations of early growth...
This document provides an evaluation of currently available rainfall runoff sediment production methodologies, identifies key parameters, and outlines field programs to gather data for model calibration. 1. RAINFALL RUNOFF There are two distinct requirements related to rainfall runoff. Firstly,...
Several hundred hectares of peatlands in Alberta have been harvested for horticultural peat moss since the 1960s and have been left unreclaimed. The need to reclaim them to a suitable land use is now recognized. Various kinds of information are required in order to assess land use alternatives...
