A presentation by the Tawatinaw Watershed Stewards Association of Alberta, a diverse group of citizens working towards ecological sustainability for the Tawatinaw River Watershed in northern Alberta. We are concerned that a proposed realignment of the Tawatinaw River by the Transportation Department of Alberta CEAR # 08-01-44280 as part of a new highway interchange within the Town of Athabasca will cause serious and irreparable damage to the Tawatinaw River Watershed, including destruction of fish habitat. We are writing to request a full EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) on this major realignment project. We feel that a full EIA is the only way to insure that all issues concerning fish habitat are taken into account in decision making concerning this project.
