Our Plan

The Plan

To effectively achieve the water quality goals of the watershed plan, the committee developed a detailed research plan.

This plan is made up of a series of questions that must be answered to understand the magnitude of the nutrient sources, the impacts of these nutrients on lakes and effectiveness.

Four Steps....To the Research Plan

  1. What are the current nutirent loads in the Qu'Appelle River watershed?
  2. What are the proportional contributions of point and non-point nutrient sources?
  3. How important are in-stream and in-lake processes for changing nutrient concentrations?
  4. What nutrient levels will result in observable changes (improvements) in water quality?

Projects to address the Plan

  • Mass Balance Study
  • Municipal Waste Water Study
  • Ag Nutrient Contributions
  • Aquatic Macroinvertebrates
