Meridian Dam preliminary feasibility study

Description

Golder Associates Ltd. was commissioned by the Governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan to assess the concept of a dam on the South Saskatchewan River just upstream from the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. The concept of a dam at the Meridian site has been considered for many years, but no previous studies have assessed the economic, environmental, and social benefits and costs. The purpose of this study is to provide a preliminary estimate of benefits and costs, as well as a broad assessment of the potential environmental and social issues associated with construction and operation of a dam and reservoir. This reservoir would supply water for irrigation, generate hydroelectric power and perhaps offer opportunities for water-based recreation. Findings of this study are expected to assist the Governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan in determining whether further investigation of the Meridian Dam is warranted.
