Pre Disturbance Site Assessment - Olds College Student Project

Olds College students perform pre-disturbance or pre-construction site assessments to mitigate potential adverse environmental impacts due to a proposed industrial activity.

Olds College students perform pre-disturbance or pre-construction site assessments to mitigate potential adverse environmental impacts due to a proposed industrial activity. Students evaluate landscape for erosion, slope, proximity to water bodies and conduct a full soil pedon description (topsoil depth, colour, texture, structure, pH, calcareous class, stoniness etc.) at numerous locations to classify soil. A thorough inventory of vegetation is recorded including native, agronomic and weed species, bare areas, and litter quality and quantity.

This project is Academics/student led.
