Save the dates!
Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 12-1pm MT: The Community Water and Resource Recovery Implementation Roadmap, featuring Jacqueline Noga, University of Alberta
Tuesday, October 13, 2020 from 12-1pm MT: Identifying sediment delivery to critical fish habitats for prioritization of mitigation actions in Alberta’s eastern slopes, featuring Michael Wagner, Government of Alberta
On October 13, 2020, a recording of Michael Wagner’s talk entitled » Resource Roads and Water » was shown to CWRA AB Branch members.
There was one question recorded in the questions log after the presentation:
Q: Have you looked at converting sediment production rates into indexed rates? ie. 2x, 3x etc…?
A: The READI model currently is an indexed sediment production or delivery rate (no units/dimensionless). This poses a challenge as we cannot differentiate between what would be a large volume of soil or a small volume. All that in known with an index is that its predicted to be delivering and it is higher or lower in comparison to other areas. In the near future we will be using the empirical work we did on road/runoff/sediment plots to estimate the quantity (km/m2 road surface or kg/mm precip) of sediments being delivered to streams.
(November) – Riparian Monitoring Programs, featuring the City of Calgary and KWL Consulting Engineers
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 from 12-1pm MT: Identifying high-runoff areas during peak streamflow on the Eastern Slopes of the southern Canadian Rocky Mountains, featuring Michael Wagner, Government of Alberta
