Assessment of Climate Change Effects on Water Yield from the North Saskatchewan River Basin

The effects of climate change on water yield on the North Saskatchewan River Basin (NSRB) will affect water use and water management in the basin. There is a need to assess the potential effects so that watershed planners can implement mitigation measures to minimize negative effects. The scope of this study includes a literature review on climate change as it pertains to the prairie regions and an assessment of trends in observed temperature, precipitation and stream flow data in the NSRB.

Economic Activity & Ecosystem Services in the North Saskatchewan River Basin

This study provides preliminary estimates of the value of services provided by ecosystems and the value of economic activity for each of the sub-basins in the North Saskatchewan River Basin. This background information could be used as a foundation for future economic studies.

The Municipal Guide: Planning for a Healthy & Sustainable North Saskatchewan River Watershed

The Municipal Guide is a resource designed by NSWA in collaboration with municipalities in the greater NSR watershed (including the Battle River watershed). It is aimed at municipal planners and other land managers interested in watershed stewardship. Its primary purpose is to provide an educational and planning tool for municipalities interested in examining their role in the management of a healthy and sustainable watershed. Contacts and resources listed throughout the guide serve as a starting point for municipalities.

The State of the North Saskatchewan River Watershed Report

The State of the North Saskatchewan River Watershed Report is key to the NSWA’s long-term goals. It is intended to provide a sound scientific base for decision-makers in the watershed. The report compiled information about current land use, water and ecological conditions within the North Saskatchewan Watershed.
