NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Bluefish Lake and Prosperous Lake as per the Fisheries Authorization and the Water Licence. This may include investigating aquatic vegetation, water quality and quantity, benthic invertebrates, fish and substrate. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation or produc...


EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Hayward, April
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2017 to 2021 will be:1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and 2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 2.5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...

Summary: To meet regulatory requirements from the Snap Lake Environmental Assessment and under the mine's Water License, Land Use permit and Environmental Agreement. The objectives of this research project are: 1) to obtain and determine annual variability of the following information in the study area: •the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behaviour of caribou; •the relative ...


Tracing the Origin of Mercury Contamination in the Lakes and Fish of the Jean Marie River First Nation Lands
Principal Investigator: Laurent, Cyrielle C
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The short term objectives for this project are to: - Assess permafrost as a possible origin of mercury contamination; - Measure mercury content in permafrost samples; - Engage the community to exchange traditional and scientific knowledge to better understand relationships between country food, water quality, and permafrost degradation from a contamination perspective; and - Use traditional la...


Marian Watershed Community-Based Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Garner, Kerri
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Tlicho Lands Moratorium was lifted in June 2013, and development pressure is expected to increase on Tlicho Lands. As Tlicho Lands are in relatively pristine condition, the intent of this study is to begin to collect baseline data at sites prioritized by community members away from specific project footprints in order to analyze the cumulative impacts of development, climate change, and increa...


The Courageous Lake Project
Principal Investigator: Wen, Marc
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies to be conducted at Courageous Lake is to collect baseline data collection is planned to characterize the environmental (physical and biological) and social and economic setting in the proposed project area. Specifically, data collection is planned to characterize the following environmental components: air quality, noise, hydrology, bathymetry, hydrogeology, a...


SWEEP - The Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program
Principal Investigator: Jones, Paul D
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The SWEEP program is being used to establish a community based environmental monitoring program in the Slave River and delta. The project has been funded for 2 years by the Canadian Water Network (CWN) to develop a new 'node' for community based monitoring which is harmonized with those already established by other CWN projects. SWEEP will develop a suite of both 'community based' and 'western s...


PWGSC Gordon Lake Environmental Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: Nyman, Jeff
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials. In addition, samples of biota (including vegetation, fish, benthic invertebrates) m...


Northwest Territories Power Corporation Twin Gorges Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan
Principal Investigator: Byrne, Geraldine
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan (AEMP) and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) are requirements under water license MV2011L0002 issued by the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB). The objective of the AEMP is to monitor and identify potential short-term, long-term and cumulative changes throughout the Taltson River aquatic environment. The objective of the SEMP is to identify...


Ecological Assessment Field Work for Lue Túé Sulái (the Five Fish Lakes) Candidate Cultural Conservation Area
Principal Investigator: Haas, Claudia A
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: This project is to fill gaps in ecological information on a Candidate Protected Area while it makes its way through the NWT Protected Areas Strategy (PAS) process. This information will be used by the working group to make recommendations on final boundary and management planning for the area. The study will be done at the same time as a study on mercury in fish being conducted by the Dehcho F...
