Project Description

This project will help to better inform ongoing water and land use planning and to target required stewardship actions for source water protection and drought/flood management being carried out by the Highwood Management Plan Public Advisory Committee (HMP-PAC) and its municipal partners. InnoTech will identify interconnectivity between groundwater flows by means of a baseline isotopic hydrology characterization in the Sheep and Highwood River watersheds. This baseline will help to address the existing knowledge gaps related to groundwater surface water interactions in the alpine and non-alpine portions of these watersheds which in turn may contribute to an adequate water management.
