North Saskatchewan river hydrodynamic and water quality model calibration

Description

The application of a dynamic water quality model representing the North Saskatchewan River (NSR) reaches, being potentially impacted by activities in the Capital Region and Industrial Heartland (IH), was identified by the IH Steering Committee as a key component in providing support for implementation of the Water Management Framework. As such, Alberta Environment and Parks (formerly Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development) has developed a hydrodynamic and water quality model, based on the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Code (EFDC) platform for the North Saskatchewan River system. The use of this model application evaluates contaminant loadings, and their effect on river water quality, under various management and engineering options in the IH area. Additionally, the dynamic water quality model is the basis for a larger integrated model of the NSR Basin to support broader-scale watershed and regional planning.
