The Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory would like to thank the MD of Lesser Slave River and the Town of Slave Lake for all their efforts to minimize the impact of the new waterline construction on the eagle nests west of town. The MD, Town and their contractors have worked hard to come up with a plan to keep disturbance around the sites to a minimum and it has been really appreciated by our members. Thank you for your conservation efforts!Three eagle’s nests have been located along the Regional Raw Water Line Intake Project near Turner Estates. The MD wishes to ensure residents that a mitigation plan is in place for all nests, and none will be disturbed.
In addition to the eagle nest mitigation plan, the Alberta Government Provincial Biologist has been consulted. The Biologist has approved the mitigation plan for each nest, and has provided the contractor with the allowable working distance from the nests, to which crews will adhere when conducting brushing and maintenance activities.
There is a full-time biologist monitoring the eagles and their nests for the next week or two until the work around the nests is completed; it has been made a priority to get the work around the nests done to keep disturbance to the eagles to a minimum before they start nesting. ... See MoreSee Less
