  The Saskatchewan River Delta is North America’s largest inland delta and a hub for fish and fur production. To determine the influence of connectivity on limnology within this northern floodplain, water chemistry and stable isotopes (δ 18 O and δ 2 H) were analyzed during the winter of in 26 shallow lakes along a hydrological by: Water in Saskatchewan is used for various socio-economic activities and passes through the Saskatchewan River Delta, one of the largest inland deltas in North America. The water resource system in Saskatchewan may face water security challenges due to changes in upstream flow conditions and provincial plans to increase irrigated agricultural : Elmira Hassanzadeh.   The DDN initiated collaborative processes with five communities in three inland deltas -- Cumberland House, Saskatchewan and The Pas, Manitoba (Saskatchewan River Delta), Fort Chipewyan, Alberta.

The Saskatchewan River Delta is a primarily Indigenous landscape of enormous importance, ecologically, economically, and socially in the interior of Canada, straddling the border between Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Most of my work focused specifically on the upper delta, centering on the community of Cumberland House and the delta that surrounds it.   The impact of competing water interests are already being felt in the Saskatchewan River Delta, the largest inland freshwater delta in North America and a nationally significant wildlife area. The E.B. Campbell Dam has disrupted the seasonal water patterns, eliminating spring flooding, increasing winter flows, and decreasing surface water coverage. The Saskatchewan River was diverted in , and by the fall of , with the $57 million dollar dam completed, the river was closed, filling the dam reservoir. By June of , Premier W.S. Lloyd opened the Squaw Rapids Dam in front of a crowd of approximately 3, Our research was undertaken in Cumberland House, in the Saskatchewan River Delta, Canada. The Saskatchewan River Delta is the largest inland delta system in North America. This delta system has provided rich wetland-dependent flora and fauna, which has driven human settlement and interaction since time immemorial.

  This proposal presents potentially significant challenges for the maintenance of healthy ecosystems downstream, including the Saskatchewan River Delta (SRD), the largest inland river delta in North America, which includes multiple wetlands and lakes that have high ecological and cultural values for the resident First Nation communities (Partners for the Saskatchewan River Basin, ).

For example, a % increase in irrigated area under a 25% decrease in inflow volume and 4-week-earlier annual peak timing can reduce the frequency of peak flows in the delta by more than 50%, though potential effects on the riparian and aquatic ecosystems remain uncertain.
