The Turtle Mountain Monitoring System is a near-real-time monitoring system that provides data from a network of more than 80 geotechnical sensors on the South Peak of Turtle Mountain (site of the 1903 Frank Slide) in the Crowsnest Pass. As of April 1, 2005, the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (now the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB)), through Alberta Geological Survey, took ownership of this system and responsibility for the long-term monitoring, interpretation of data and notification of the Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) should significant movements occur.
This document outlines the specific roles and responsibilities of ERCB staff during normal operation of the system and during an emergency. A separate document prepared by AEMA outlines the action plans for the stakeholders and first responders in the Crowsnest Pass.
