Project Description: The objective of this year's program is to continue establishing baseline environmental conditions pertaining to air, water, sediment quality and terrestrial resources. To examine the aquatic environment of Snap lake water samples will be taken, a snow course survey will be done and stream flow measurements will be taken. The vegetation study will include a literature review of plant distributions and a field inventory. Air quality studies will include installation of 3 Hi-vol dust samples on site, collection of weather data and evaluation of noise emissions and impacts. Field personnel will fly to Snap Lake. On site transportation will be by snow machine, all-terrain vehicles and boats. Traditional knowledge gathering will be limited to summary information given to the researchers by community groups. Wildlife research details can be found in the Renewable Resources and Economic Development (RWED) wildlife research permit for this project.
