A study was initiated in 1988 to evaluate the effects of pipeline construction on soil compaction in the province of Alberta. The pipelines were located throughout Alberta on a number of different soils and were constructed using various techniques. Cone penetration resistance of soils (soil...
In 1981, a study was initiated near Princess, Alberta to evaluate single-lift pipeline construction impacts on Solonetzic mixed prairie rangeland. In August 1991, a further evaluation of the study sites was conducted to determine the longevity of the changes that took place on the 1981...
Companies installing pipelines seek economical, practical and environmentally responsible methods of soil handling during pipeline construction to ensure successful soil reclamation. The objectives of the Twelve Mile Coulee Soil Research Project are to evaluate the impact of pipeline...
Topsoil Handling During Pipeline Construction in Potentially Arable Forested Luvisols of Northwest AlbertaDownload
The objective of this study was to evaluate several pipeline topsoil stripping depths to determine whether they result in land capability equivalent to that of adjacent forested lands broken for cultivation. Topsoil stripping depths were 0 cm, 15 cm and 30 cm. Soils chosen for the study were...
The degree of soil compaction is dependent on many variables including soil type and soil conditions as well as vehicle type and traffic density. Soil compaction can lead to limited plant development because of poor aeration, low nutrient and water availability, slow water permeability and...
The objective of this literature review was to evaluate the available information on the effects of stripping versus not stripping topsoil during pipeline construction in potentially arable Luvisolic soils in forested areas. A profile description representative of an undisturbed Luvisol under...
This study was initiated in 1988 to evaluate the effects of pipeline construction on soil strengths of various soils in the province of Alberta. The pipelines were scattered throughout Alberta on a number of different soils and were constructed using various techniques. At each of the fifteen...
This literate review evaluates the information available on the effects of overstripping topsoil during pipeline construction on native rangelands in southeastern Alberta. The effects on soil quality and handling of Chernozemic and Solonetzic soils are presented in detail as these are the...
