Red River

Ongoing water management efforts that mitigate extreme flows to reduce flooding impacts on infrastructure throughout the Red River watershed have led to concerns about fish passage over existing dams as well as through or around current and pending water diversion projects.…

The International Joint Commission (IJC) has prioritized working actively to increase collaboration and engagement with Indigenous peoples (i.e., Métis Nation, First Nations, and Tribes) along the transboundary basins, including those within the Red River Basin.

This project will identify factors contributing to the consistently increasing concentrations of sulfate, TDS, and chloride (as a group, these three constituents may be referred to hereafter as “salts”) in the Red River Basin and evaluate the relative effect of those factors on…

The International Joint Commission has recommended to the governments of Canada and the USA adopt objectives and targets for nitrogen and phosphorus at the Red River international boundary to help address eutrophication concerns in the Red River and Lake Winnipeg.

The Red River is susceptible to periods of dry conditions that have the potential to adversely impact ecological conditions and water supply.

This project is a hydroacoustic telemetry study that is being conducted in the Red River to study movements and habitat use of a number of fish species including Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens), Bigmouth Buffalo (Ictiobus cyprinellus), Channel Catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), Walleye (Sander…

Following the 1997 Red River flood, work was undertaken to increase the flood resiliency of the basin. The International Joint Commission’s (IJC) 2000 report, “Living with the Red”, identified a number of feasible flood mitigation measures.

This project is a hydroacoustic telemetry study that is being conducted in the Red River to study movements and habitat use of a number of fish species including Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens), Bigmouth Buffalo (Ictiobus cyprinellus), Channel Catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), Walleye (Sander…

A basin-wide study using 10-25 years of data from 37 sites is being performed to develop an up-to-date water quality trend analysis for a variety of contaminants, such as nutrients, sulfate and chloride. This analysis uses the U.S.

This project is the fifth and final phase of the two-dimensional hydrodynamic model to simulate hypothetical flood mitigation scenarios on the lower Pembina River Floodplains.
