Enhanced Monitoring To Protect North Saskatchewan River

Body: 

Alberta Environment and Parks, EPCOR, the City of Edmonton and the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance have partnered to launch an enhanced water monitoring program that aims to better understand and protect the North Saskatchewan River – the source of drinking water for over 1 million people in the region.

The WaterSHED (Water: Saskatchewan Headwaters, Edmonton and Downstream) Monitoring Program consists of a network of 19 monitoring stations along the North Saskatchewan River, from its headwaters in the Columbia Icefields to the Saskatchewan border.

As Alberta’s most extensive water quality monitoring and sampling program, it will improve understanding of how the river functions, how it is being impacted by land-use decisions and actions, and how it may change in the future.
