Alberta Regeneration Standards for the Mineable Oil Sands May 1, 2013
The Alberta Regeneration Standards for the Mineable Oil Sands (MOS ARS) describes the measurement and reporting standards that are required to be followed by all oil sands operators when assessing the reclamation success of areas targeting commercial forestry as an end land use. Following the protocols in the MOS ARS will enable operators to document the reforestation status of reclaimed areas, assess tree species composition and distribution and identify any areas where the level of regeneration success is less than expected so that follow-up assessments can be carried out. The MOS ARS outlines the requirements for: survey timing, polygon stratification, establishment and location of field plots, data collection procedures, quality assurance/quality control measures, data compilation, and reporting to Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD). The MOS ARS was developed collaboratively with Cumulative Environmental Management Association members,including ESRD, oil sands industry and First Nations representatives.
