Battle Lake, located approximately 90 km southwest of Edmonton (near Pigeon Lake, Alberta), is the headwaters of the Battle River system. It is a long narrow lake with a drainage basin approximately 23 times the sixe of the lake. Largely forested due to the steep sided valley, this picturesque lake and watershed provides an important habitat for many wildlife species, including the bald eagle. Protection of the Battle Lake watershed from development, in particular the effects of oil and gas development, is a major concern for many residents living in this area.
Battle Lake Watershed Synergy Group was established in 2005 to ensure effective and sensitive planning of oil and gas development in the Battle Lake watershed area through open and honest communication and planning between residents, the oil and gas industry and government agencies.
To provide an effective and proactive forum to allow Community, Industry and Government to communicate and share information respectfully and cooperatively, to aid in an integrated approach to developing and planning oil and gas activity in a manner that protects and preserves the Battle Lake Watershed.
