Services Provided by NSC:
NSC was contracted by the Association of Irrigators in Manitoba to conduct a field validation of proposed minimum instream flows in several streams undergoing water withdrawals for irrigation. A total of 17 sites on 14 streams were visited during high, moderate and low flows to assess physical and biological conditions. Flows were then compared to mean annual flows and, where possible, a minimum instream flow was recommended for each watercourse.
