SCARI is an Android-based mobile application with a secure online database and a web-based dashboard for client interaction. The SCARI mobile app will collect, compile and determine the risk of any watercourse crossing as part of the overall crossing management system. The program fulfills all of the Alberta Government regulatory requirements while allowing the roadway owner to manage their time and resources to allow for the best fit

SCARI is designed to provide an easy way to collect enough information for a thorough crossing assessment that exceeds the minimum requirements set by the Roadway Watercourse Crossing Inspection Manual.

The app uses a Decision Support System (DSS) to determine the extent to which the crossing poses a risk to fish passage. This information is then used to prioritize crossings in a watershed-level restoration plan. Clients can view this information on our website at any time.

Scari Process:
  • Model: Using spatial data, we are able to predict watercourse crossing locations.
  • Inventory: Qualified field staff take a full inventory of crossings and perform crossing inspections.
  • Model: Use field data to determine which crossings are priority at the watershed level.
  • Plan: Create a restoration plan for all crossings in the watershed.
  • Fix: Replace, repair or restore problem crossings.
