The International Joint Commission has recommended to the governments of Canada and the USA to adopt objectives and targets for nitrogen and phosphorus at the Red River international boundary to help address eutrophication concerns in the Red River and Lake Winnipeg.
The Red River is susceptible to periods of dry conditions that have the potential to adversely impact ecological conditions and water supply.
Following the 1997 Red River flood, work was undertaken to increase the flood resiliency of the basin. The International Joint Commission’s (IJC) 2000 report, “Living with the Red”, identified a number of feasible flood mitigation measures.
A basin-wide study using 10-25 years of data from 37 sites is being performed to develop an up-to-date water quality trend analysis for a variety of contaminants, such as nutrients, sulfate and chloride. This analysis uses the U.S.
This project is the fifth and final phase of the two-dimensional hydrodynamic model to simulate hypothetical flood mitigation scenarios on the lower Pembina River Floodplains.
