      The Athabasca River stretches 1, km from the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park to the northeastern corner of Alberta and into western Saskatchewan. Characterized by diverse regions, the Athabasca River Basin (ARB) is unique in natural resources, ecology, climate, and development. The Athabasca River connects these. Athabasca River Conditions and Use. The Lower Athabasca Region Surface Water Quantity Management Framework for the Lower Athabasca River establishes weekly management triggers and water withdrawal limits to enable proactive management of mineable oil sands water use from the Athabasca River.

The Athabasca oil sands, also known as the Athabasca tar sands, are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil, located in northeastern Alberta, Canada – roughly centred on the boomtown of Fort oil sands, hosted primarily in the McMurray Formation, consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid rock-like form of crude oil), silica sand, clay minerals, and water.

The Athabasca River (French: Rivière Athabasca) is a river in Alberta, Canada, which originates at the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park and flows more than 1, km ( mi) before emptying into Lake Athabasca.

Much of the land along its banks is protected in national and provincial parks, and the river is designated a Canadian Heritage River for its historical and cultural importance. Total (particulate plus dissolved), dissolved and chemical speciation of As (III, V) in surface water of the Athabasca River (AR) during autumn (A) and (B).

Site WWTP is located upstream of the town of Fort McMurray and far upstream of ABS industrial activities. The area of greatest industrial activity is located between sites A18w. Athabasca River, river in northern Alberta, Canada, forming the southernmost part of the Mackenzie River system.

From its source in the Columbia Icefield (Canadian Rocky Mountains) near the Continental Divide, the river flows through Jasper National Park, site of the spectacular Athabasca Falls, and winds northeastward across Alberta to its mouth and delta on Lake Athabasca.

For Athabasca River trout-perch, BaP concentrations ranged from ± ng/g at ATR-1, upstream of Fort McMurray to ± ng/g at Poacher's Landing, also upstream of Fort McMurray.

Overall BaP concentrations were higher in slimy sculpin ranging from ± ng/g for fish caught at the mid Firebag to ± ng/g in the.

In Ells continued his reconnaissance work and backpacked out another seventy pounds of oil. Athabasca River Hydrological Profile The Athabasca River drains an area of approximatelykm², and flows nearly 1, km from its headwaters to the Peace-Athabasca Delta and Lake Athabasca.

The Athabasca River system includes a total of 94 rivers, over named creeks, numerous unnamed creeks, and lakes (Science Outreach ).

The Athabasca River was divided into sites upstream (ARU) of Fort Creek and downstream including the Athabasca River Delta (ARD) channel sites. Athabasca River sediments tended to have PAH concentrations intermediate between high and low tributary sites.

This suggests rapid dilution of oil sands PAHs in the sediments of the Athabasca River. The Athabasca River drains an area of km2 in northern Alberta, Canada, with much of the lower basin underlain by oil-sand deposits. The oil sands occur primarily in the McMurray Formation.

The surface mineable deposits cover 4, km 2 of the largest oil sands deposit, the Athabasca oil sands, and surround the region of Fort McMurray in northeastern Alberta.

During the surface mining process, bitumen is extracted from up to m below the surface and is separated from other oil sands constituents using hot water (40–60 °C.

Introduction. The lower Athabasca River region in northern Alberta is the focus of oil sands development ().This river and its associated tributaries and delta support a rich assemblage of migratory fish species that utilize the broad spectrum of resources available in this area, and they are “valued ecosystem components” (Beanlands and Duinker ) because of their importance to.

1 Past River Flows and Time Trends in the Athabasca River Long-term flow monitoring records are not available for the reaches of the Athabasca River below Fort McMurray, limiting the prediction of trends in flow in the area of oil sands development or in the Athabasca Delta.

A short period of record was collected at Embarras, from. the Athabasca River8. A major effort to assess the state of the aquatic ecosystem of the entire Mackenzie River Basin, 8 More t references from government, scientific and other publications are located in the Repository of the Athabasca River Basin Research Institute, maintained by the Athabasca River Basin Research Institute.The Athabasca River is supplemented during the late summer by glacier melt ~58% of the Athabasca River streamflow by area occurs upstream of Hinton, ~38% occurs upstream of Jasper On a per-area basis, much of the water in the Athabasca River is generated in its headwaters, at high elevations in the Rocky Mountains.

Concentrations of some PPE at one location in Lake Athabasca near Fort Chipewyan were also greater than concentration in the Athabasca River upstream of development. Canada's or Alberta's guidelines for the protection of aquatic life were exceeded for seven PPE-cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, silver, and zinc-in melted snow and/or water.
