Key Messages, Warming over the 20th century is indisputable and largely due to human activities. Canada’s rate of warming is about twice the global rate: a 2ºC increase globally means a 3 to 4ºC increase for Canada. Effects will persist for centuries because greenhouse gases (GHGs) are long-lived...
Review of Groundwater Assessemnt Methodology - Province of Prince Edward Island. Submitted by Kerry T. B. MacQuarrie, PhD, PEng. Submitted to the Department of Environment, Labour and Justice, PEI December 29, 2014
Saltwater Intrusion and Climate Change Report was prepared by the Prince Edward Island Department of Environment, Labour and Justice. 2011
Over the past three decades, Prince Edward Island has experienced a steady increase in the level of nitrates – both in the groundwater we rely on for drinking water, and in rivers, streams and estuaries that are home to a wide variety of wildlife and a source of livelihood and enjoyment for many...
Surface water and groundwater are critical hydrological resources for Prince Edward Island. Surface water is required for irrigation; groundwater provides the drinking water and some irrigation resources for the island. The same freshwaters also support a rich diversity of life in island streams...
Prince Edward Island is blessed with an abundance of clean, cool water. We draw it up from the ground, use it, enjoy it - and there's always more.
Numerical groundwater flow models are developed for selected watersheds to examine the physics and dynamics of groundwater flow and evaluate existing groundwater management policy in Prince Edward Island (PEI). The simulations faithfully reproduce the observed behaviors with respect to the timing...
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an important and effective planning tool for predicting the potential environmental consequences of proposed developments. It is a means to identify unwanted effects before they occur and determine appropriate mitigation measures.
This presentation provides background information about water on PEI. This includes the water cycle, groundwater flow patterns, and water use. The presentation also outlines PEI's Water Extraction Permtting Policy . The policy considers varying water patterns across the province to both...
Additional background and reference material was used to prepare the presentation. The background information appears as a separate slide(s) that follow the slide to which it refers. A list of references is provided at the end of the background material.
