State of the Watershed Resources:
Alberta Geological Survey
Here is the home. There are a variety of resources for the Peace and Slave Watershed on different parts of the website.

ALMS is focussed on lakes throughout Alberta and does stewardship, monitoring and reporting. Check out their webpage for information on lakes that interest you.
What is this? Alberta Tomorrow is a modelling application and that means that it does not make predictions about the future but rather presents one possible future scenario out of many. Why is this useful? It allows us to have an idea of how our activities across the land impact our province all together. How is this connected to the MPWA and watershed things? The MPWA is interested the watershed – all land surrounding the water – and not just the water, so this helps think about what changes could be made on the land to make sure we have the water that we want. This is for educational purposes only and MPWA does not endorse any particular views of Alberta tomorrow.
