University of Alberta/Canfor, Energy/Timber, Northern Alberta

In conjunction with Canfor and University of Alberta, NetMap is being used to evaluate road surface erosion and sediment delivery to streams as part of a cumulative watershed effects pilot study in the Peace River basin of northern Alberta, Canada.

Extensive gravel surfaced roads that criss cross parts of northern Alberta service the expanding oil and gas industry and the timber industry. Planned completion, October 2015.

For this analysis, University of Alberta staff is working with NetMap's road tools within a virtual watershed.
