Keeyask Generation Project - Predictive Modelling of Reservoir Habitat

Creation of the reservoir for the Keeyask Generation Project is predicted to increase water depth, decrease water velocities, and flood terrestrial habitat along the Nelson River upstream of Gull Rapids. An adjacent reservoir, Stephens Lake, was 30 years old and served as a proxy for the proposed reservoir. Other reservoirs on the Nelson River were also studied and were used to build empirical models (Discriminant Analysis and logistic regression) to predict where in the reservoir sediment would deposit and where plants would grow.
