Proposed Site-Specific Water Quality Objectives for the Mainstem of the North Saskatchewan River

The NSWA developed a set of water quality objectives for the NSR and adopted a “non-degradation” approach in their recommendations. Information and numerical guidelines contained in various environmental publications were used to evaluate water quality conditions and the ecological requirements of the NSR. This report represents an initial step in the process of setting specific water quality objectives. It is limited to a basic set of quality indicators at specific sites along the North Saskatchewan River mainstem. This work forms a key component of the IWMP for the NSR.
