The objective of the monitoring and mitigation is to determine operating procedures and mitigation options for the annual shutdown at Taltson Hydroelectric Facility to minimize the environmental impact on downstream Trudel Creek.
Various mitigation options have been and are being assessed and the results on Trudel Creek are being monitored to determine the best operating procedure for the annu...

The objective of this project is to complete the fish contaminants, benthic and fall water quality programs in the Marian River as detailed in the Supplemental Baseline Monitoring Plan.
Water samples for laboratory analysis will be collected at least 15 cm below the water surface by hand directly into the sample bottles (EC 2012). Sample bottles and caps will be triple rinsed prior to water col...

The primary objective of this research program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions of nine sites in the Gordon Lake region.
This research will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater. Samples of biota (e.g. Hyalella) may be collected at certain sites during the field program. The potential for...

The objectives of this research are to learn about and articulate the importance of early impact assessment methodology to questions of political governance in the Northwest Territories. In this research into core concepts of the field of political geography, the Principal Investigator (PI) has found little that examines or articulates the manner in which traditional territories of Indigenous popu...
