Mayatan Lake Watershed Management Plan


This  plan  serves  as  advice  to  Parkland  County,  the  Government  of  Alberta,  the  Mayatan  Lake  Management Association and all watershed stakeholders to guide future decision‐making in their respective  areas  of  responsibility  and  interest.  It  identifies  specific  actions  that  should  be  implemented, describes the roles and responsibilities of the various players to do so, and presents an implementation strategy based on both voluntary and statutory activities.  A wide range of land  and  water  characteristics  may  be  considered  in  the  development  of  lake  and  watershed  management plans.  Several key factors are discussed in this report.  

The recommended management actions for Mayatan Lake are presented within the context of the Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the NSR (2012).  The recommendations reflect the issues identified by stakeholders, and watershed management principles appropriate for this small lake.  The recommendations are structured and formatted in alignment with the Goals and Actions of the IWMP and are further classified into policy, stewardship and technical actions. It is the opinion of NSWA that the recommendations fairly reflect the input received from all parties, and are supported by basic watershed management principles.
