Water management policy for the South Saskatchewan River Basin by Alberta. Alberta Environment Download PDF EPUB FB2

The South Saskatchewan River is a major river in Canada that flows through the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. For the first half of the 20th century, the South Saskatchewan would completely freeze over during winter, creating spectacular ice breaks and dangerous conditions in Saskatoon, Medicine Hat and elsewhere.

At least one bridge in Saskatoon was destroyed by ⁃ location: Municipal District of Taber, Alberta. The Modified Interaction Soil Biosphere Atmosphere (MISBA) model, the Water Resources Management Model (WRMM) of Alberta Environment, and the Irrigation District Model (IDM) of Alberta Agriculture Food and Rural Development were used to assess the future outlook of water resource management of the South Saskatchewan River Basin (SSRB) of Alberta under the.

Water Watchdog. Water Watchdog Water Watchdog is a hands-on water monitoring program for youth that increases awareness about water and water management issues. It encourages individual actions that will contribute to healthier ecosystems.

It is a ready-to-go water monitoring and education program to test for basic water quality parameters. The Province of Alberta, Canada recently introduced a Water Management Policy for the South Saskatchewan River Basin that called for determination of the maximum amount of water that can be allocated for irrigation and other uses in the various sub-basins of.

[Kim Sturgess; Brett Purdy;]. The Alberta provincial government approved the Water Management Plan for the South Saskatchewan River Basin (SSRB) in August As a result of this plan, the Province stopped accepting applications for new allocations of water in the Oldman, Bow, and South Saskatchewan sub-basins in southern Alberta.

Current water allocations based on historic use heavily favour irrigators, with instream flow needs of the aquatic environment an afterthought.

The WSA allocates water based on a first-in-time, first-in-right system which does not promote sustainability or study uses lessons learned from water management in Australia’s Murray-Darling Basin, Alberta’s South Saskatchewan River Basin, California’s Kern County Subbasin, and Colorado’s Denver Basin to formulate.

The past few years have been “back to the s” for rain. Excess water has been the result. The s spawned the Conservation and Development Branch (C&D) of Saskatchewan Agriculture to help farmers deal with excess water.

Ag engineers designed C & D ditches to carry away excess water to a suitable location without negative effects on others.

A distinctive feature of water management in the country is the key role of basin authorities, where stakeholders are involved in all management decisions.

An integrated approach to water availability assessment for irrigation is presented and illustrated through examples from Canada’s South Saskatchewan River Basin (SSRB). It is based on the integration of irrigation and non-irrigation water demands at the basin level, and accounts for the seasonal and annual variation in water supply and water Cited by: 1.

The legal and policy framework for managing water resources at the local, the national and the transboundary level is, however, still underexplored.
