Reclamation Guidance for Soil and Substrate Material use and Placement

Indicators for suitable substrate(s) to support plant establishment, productivity and biomass in the littoral zone of constructed lakes and shallow water wetlands (open water wetland less than two meters deep), and marshes require development. Adequate attention to substrate material properties is needed for successful vegetation establishment. This project was undertaken to synthesize information on current practices for the placement of substrate materials and soil in mineral-based wetland systems in the Alberta Oil Sands mine lease areas.
