Past Projects

Over the years we've done some incredibly interesting work, here you can find some of our favorites! If there is something in particular you're looking for that isn't here get intouch with us, and we'll do our best to help you find what you're after.

Aerial Riparian Assessments Due to the inaccessibility of much of our watershed by vehicle we worked with Alberta Conservation Association and George Walker to fly overhead and do video recordings of Lesser Slave Lake. We also surveyed the South Heart, West Prairie, and Swan Rivers, as well as some of their tributaries with this method.
Lesser Slave River Hydraulic Surveying & Modelling Using 2D modelling we were able to determine the required river flow levels necessary for fish health, and downstream water uses of all license holders. 
Swan River Channel Survey Regulatory river cutoffs were implemented in the past to reduce flood risk to agricultural lands, this survey was undertaken to determine if the banks of the Swan River had stabilized as a result of the cutoffs. If you are interested in learning more about this model and how it works please download this powerpoint presentation about the different models.
Buffalo Bay Bathymetry Concern that sediment transport from the tributary streams is filling this area prompted us to survey the area and compare results to a 1983 survey to determine how sedimentation is impacting the area.   
Swan River Channel surveys In the fall of 2008, sections of the Swan River were surveyed to compare surveys from the 1980’s. The goal of this project is to determine whether or not the banks of the river have started to stabilize after regulatory river cutoffs were made to control flooding of agricultural land. The summary report is available here.
