Ecological Recovery Monitoring Program (ERMP)

In keeping with Alberta’s history of continuously [adapting] its industrial land conservation and reclamation program and related legislation in response to changing public expectations and improvements in reclamation science, this project will evaluate ecological condition of reclaimed/certified sites (and how this varies among ecosites and over time after certification) and achieve two principal objectives:

  • Create a scientifically robust, transparent, and financially sustainable long-term reclamation monitoring system.
  • Conduct a retrospective study of historical well sites to address key knowledge gaps that currently constrain the assessment of ecological recovery after reclamation.
