Project Description: SUMMARY OF AMENDMENT:
This amendment is to include bathymetry work in August 2005 and to start earlier in the fall to monitor fall freezeup. The amendment allows the researchers to address the community's request that the potential effects of man-made features along the river be considered in detail as part of the Hay River Ice Jam Study. The bathymetry work will be done on August 2-6 and 14-28, and the fall freeze-up work will be done from October 15 - December 21, 2005.
