A multitude of dams are found along our rivers throughout the Prairie Provinces – rivers both large and small. Dams are constructed for a variety of reasons – to create reservoirs to use for electrical generation, water use and recreation, dams to create wetland areas for waterfowl and wildlife, and dams to control water drainage.
These dams change the landscape in many ways, altering stream flows, creating lakes, and creating wetlands. All construction affects the landscape in some way and therefore the way that we humans interact with our surroundings.
The conference will bring together experts from many fields related to the existence of dams. Please join us October 1 through 3, 2018 in Saskatoon to hear about how the presence or lack of dams affects our everyday lives.
