Overview of RAMP

The Regional Aquatics Monitoring Program is a science-based and results-focused environmental monitoring program that is designed to fulfill the aquatic monitoring needs of all RAMP stakeholders. The program strives to achieve a holistic understanding of potential effects of oil sands development on aquatic systems, as well as address specific issues important to communities of the region.

Although the core elements of RAMP, such as discipline-specific monitoring components, overall framework and the approach have remained relatively consistent over time, the design of the program continues to be adapted and refined in response to new information and changes in scope associated with the ongoing increase in oil sands development in the region.
