Abstract
Wetlands are a critical and valued component of boreal landscapes in northeastern Alberta, and they comprise a significant proportion of operational tenures within the in-situ oil sands region. While companies have made progress on avoidance and mitigation strategies to reduce their impacts to wetlands, they also face many common challenges, including pad, road, and culvert settlement; culvert bowing and failure; and tree mortality or other vegetation changes in wetlands adjacent to roads. This document compiles a toolbox of shared practices currently in use by COSIA companies, or which have been used but were found to be unsuccessful.
