The Bow River Phosphorus Management Plan (PMP) is a strategic plan. It addresses phosphorus sources in the middle reach of the Bow River between the Bearspaw and Bassano Dams.
The plan was developed by participants from:
- government and non-government
- urban and rural sectors
- subject matter experts
Task teams were established to:
- define the issue
- establish goals and objectives
- recommend strategies and actions to manage phosphorus in the Bow River
The PMP was released in April 2014 and officially endorsed by all participating agencies in February 2015. The implementation phase is underway with the establishment of the PMP Implementation Committee in June 2014.
Integral components of the implementation strategy include:
- ongoing education and outreach
- ongoing refinement of performance measures
