Rock Dams - The Effects of Recreational Rock Dams on Water Quality and Stream Measurements in Fish Creek

Thursday, October 24, 2019 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre Shannon Terrace, Fish Creek Provincial Park

Presented by Jenny Atamanik - Master of Science Student at Royal Roads University

Fish Creek has a large number of park visitors and some visitors enjoy constructing rock dams (recreational rock dams) across the creek. These rock dams are arranged in order to provide a walkway to cross the creek or to create a swimming hole, and can be seen throughout Fish Creek Provincial Park. Jenny Atamanik has been studying the effects of these dams throughout the summer months and will share her findings at this presentation. The talk will focus on the inventory and categorizing of rock dams in Fish Creek as well as the results of weekly monitoring of water quality and stream measurements upstream and downstream of recreational rock dams. 

Jenny currently works at an environmental consulting company as a Risk Assessment Scientist, and has worked in a variety of environmental positions including bird studies in the Northwest Territories, construction monitoring in northern Alberta, and her work currently focuses on environmental site assessments and human health risk assessments.

Refunds are possible up to 7 days before the event, but service fee will not be refunded.
