Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada

The spotlight from a freight barge shines out over the Athabasca River. From south to north, the Athabasca connects Fort McMurray, Fort McKay, the oil sands mines and Fort Chipewyan. Many rely upon the waterway as a means for travel, hunting and transportation of goods. Water levels have become dangerously low since the oil sands industry began drawing water from the river for their processing facilities.
