Assessment of water quality in Alberta's irrigation districts. Second edition.

Description

Irrigated agriculture accounts for a large portion of agricultural production in Alberta. Water quality is intricately linked to agricultural production. Quality production is reliant upon clean source water. Water quality deterioration can occur in a number of ways, including land use impacts from agricultural, industrial, urban, and rural development. The objectives of this study were to: assess the quality of source water used for irrigation from a food production perspective; assess changes in water quality as water travels through the irrigation infrastructure; determine if there are differences in water quality among the irrigation districts; and determine if there are differences in water quality between two types of conveyance systems.
