As pretty as this little waterall might be, you don't want this headcut chewing through your field.



Water issues are always there - sometimes too much, sometimes too little.  Often the attempt control or manage water leads to unintended and unwanted consequences years later.  This project is focusing on restoring a stream so that erosion is controlled.

Streambank Stabilization and Extension


A successful field season means that these banks are on their way to stability.  It will be years before the stream channel meanders again and begins to function at full capacity for flood and drought mitigation, improving water quality, providing habitat and bank stability. Planning is occurring for field work in the 2019 season.

This is the erosion problem creating by channel straightening done decades ago.  Accessing the field on both sides of the incised channel is tough.

This project is starting with assessment and we would like you to join us.


Many hands make for light work.  Happy to be working with our partners.

We would like to thank the Government of Alberta for providing funding for this project through the Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program (http://aep.alberta.ca/water/programs-and-services/watershed-resiliency-and-restoration-program/default.aspx).
