The Red Deer River Watershed Alliance is proud to release our newest Spotlight Series video, What’s the Flowcast. This short video explores how a changing climate and increasing hydrological variability might affect the Red Deer River watershed, located in central Alberta. The Red Deer River watershed’s status as a water-constrained basin, coupled with increasing growth in various sectors and changing land-use patterns, requires a thoughtful and coordinated approach to watershed management.
The relationship between climate change and streamflows is complex. The “flowcast” for the Red Deer River basin depends on climate, land-use, infrastructure, and more. Learn more about these issues and what you can do in your community by watching the video or visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63g5MmV92lE.
