Prairie Water: Workshop: Water management tools for the Prairies

June 16 @ 12:00 am

Date:  Sunday June 16, 2024 (Half Day – Morning)

Water management on the Prairies must deal with risks from drought, flooding, degraded water quality and climate change. Additional risk comes from using outdated information to make complex water management decisions.

The workshop will expose participants to two tools for water management that were developed by the Prairie Water project team and designed for use by practitioners and researchers. The tools provide data to inform water management decisions and infrastructure design and are the result of over 5 years of Prairie Water research on water management challenges in the region.

  1. Prairie Hydrology Design and Analysis Product (PHyDAP) – Hydrological data input for hydraulic models to design infrastructure and calculate robust return-period flows (includes historic conditions and future climate projections).
  2. Data Visualization Dashboard – A tool for viewing and interacting with spatial and temporal data for the Prairies, including a novel watershed classification, hydrological variables and ecosystem services under a range of climate and wetland management scenarios, pesticide application rates and occurrence indices, and groundwater recharge rates. Download links for data included.

Facilitators: Kevin Shook, Chris Spence, Colin Whitfield, and Lauren Miranda, University of Saskatchewan

Cost: $30.00 Regular, $15.00 Student
