Surface Water Quality The surface water quality WQ program, as part of the Joint Canada/Alberta Implementation Plan, is designed to improve the ability to detect change and predict effects in relation to point and non‐point sources. A mass‐balance approach has been used for assessing the quantity, movement, and cycling of materials in the watershed. Applying this approach required a sampling program which included quantification of the sources, transport, flux, and fate of materials and contaminants. The Surface WQ monitoring sampling includes, in part, collection of; - event freshet and rain based WQ samples in tributaries ranging from daily to bi-weekly, - WQ samples in the Athabasca River using cross-channel transect methods at specified Phase 1 sites, - enhanced additional parameters WQ sampling at M9, M12, and M11A and at 5 new interconnecting channel stations within the Expanded Geographical Area EGA , - ground water samples in specific high priority tributaries, and - auto-monitoring near real-time on a subset of parameters at sites in the EGA 2012-12-18 2016-11-17 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and Environmentwater qualitylong term monitoringoil sands Surface Water Qualityother http://www.ec.gc.ca/data_donnees/SSB-QualEau_OSM-WaterQual/Surface_Water_Quality/ Mainstem Water Qualityother http://www.ec.gc.ca/data_donnees/SSB-QualEau_OSM-WaterQual/Surface_Water_Quality/Event_Based_Water_Quality Event Based Water Qualityother http://www.ec.gc.ca/data_donnees/SSB-QualEau_OSM-WaterQual/Surface_Water_Quality/Event_Based_Water_Quality Expanded Geographic Extent Water Qualityother http://www.ec.gc.ca/data_donnees/SSB-QualEau_OSM-WaterQual/Surface_Water_Quality/Expanded_Geographic_Extent_Water_Quality Groundwater Water Qualityother http://www.ec.gc.ca/data_donnees/SSB-QualEau_OSM-WaterQual/Surface_Water_Quality/Groundwater_Water_Quality
