State of the Watershed Report

The BRWA is proud to announce the completion of its first State of the Watershed (SOW) Report for the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds. This State of the Watershed report is an important first step in becoming more knowledgeable about our watershed and more attuned to what we need to do to make it healthier. It provides a snapshot of the current health of the Alberta portions of the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds, looking at various indicators of watershed health such as surface and groundwater quality and quantity, land use practices, wetland and riparian health, biodiversity and the status of fish and wildlife species, and more.

Paper copies of the report are available through our office. Contact Sarah, BRWA Watershed Planning Coordinator, if you'd like to receive a copy (sarah@battleriverwatershed.ca; 780-672-0276).

The report described above provides a broad overview of the current state of our watersheds. For those who want to dig a little deeper, this summary report will be supported by technical chapters on the various ecological, social and economic components that make up our watersheds. As they are finalized, these technical chapters will be made available on our website.

Want to learn more about the state of your watershed? We'd love to come talk to your group/organization, community, or municipal government. Contact Sarah Skinner, BRWA Watershed Planning Coordinator, by phone at 780.672.0276 or email at sarah@battleriverwatershed.ca, to set up a meeting date!
