Abstract

The revised guidelines for Alberta include ones developed by the Government of Alberta, Canada Council of Minister’s of the Environment (CCME), the USA (US EPA), and other provinces. They are used to evaluate and report on the condition of surface water quality throughout Alberta, to develop water quality based approval limits for wastewater discharges and as the basis for site-specific water quality objectives. General guidance on the application of the guidelines are included in the guidelines document.
