Watershed Description:1433 km^2 Muskeg River, which is a tributary of lower Athabasca River that is located in the Athabasca oil sands region in northern Alberta, Canada (the land area related to oil sands development in 2015 was 238.9 km^2). 
Calibration Summary:The performances for the daily heavymetal loads simulation during the whole simulation period can be considered as 'satisfactory' based on the recommended modelperformance criteria with the Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency as 0.41 and 0.71 for Pb and Cu loads, respectively.
