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...


Stream Crossing Assessment of Select Watercourses along the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway Alignment and Rare Plant Survey of Select Borrow Sources
Principal Investigator: Stevens, Jim
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The purpose of this study is to complete a stream crossing assessment and rare plant survey. STREAM CROSSING ASSESSMENT At each watercourse crossing site (n=12), a fish habitat assessment will be conducted from 300 m downstream to 100m upstream. Watercourses will be accessed via helicopter. The following data will be collected at each watercourse crossings site: • Six transects will be estab...


EL462 & EL463 2013-2014 Biolophysical Baseline Study
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of the project is to identify the fish species present, and to gather population data on surveyed species, in waterbodies in the area of Husky’s proposed exploration activity. Four streams and four to seven small lakes are proposed to be assessed. The Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program recommended selecting 2-4 streams appropriate for collection of baseline information that can...


Prairie Creek Mine - Baseline Aquatic Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wilcockson, John B
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: To collect baseline aquatic data in advance of the development of the Prairie Creek Mine. The study will be part of the Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program (AEMP) and will satisfy the requirements of the federal Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM). The description below is a summary of the planned methodology. Most work will be carried out on Prairie Creek; however, sampling will also be con...


CSI Husky Lakes – Evaluation of hydro-climatic drivers of contaminant transfer in aquatic food webs in the Husky Lakes Watershed
Principal Investigator: Gantner, Nikolaus (Klaus)
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The overall goals are to: 1. Provide baseline information on contaminant levels, incorporate Traditional Knowledge, and jointly plan future monitoring based on these and other resources; 2. Build capacity locally by providing training in sampling and monitoring techniques to local persons, and; 3. Establish a monitoring plan that incorporates science and TK-based data which provides information...


2013 Yellowknife Bay Baseline Data Collection for Aquatics and Fisheries
Principal Investigator: Kramer, Tara
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The primary objective of this research program is to collect baseline data on: 1) water chemistry, limnologic profiles, sediments, plankton, benthic invertebrates and aquatic habitat; and, 2) fish presence and collection of fish tissue for metal analysis. Aquatics: The Aquatics field program will be conducted in the spring of 2013. During the field program, the following samples will be coll...


Effects of Athabasca and Slave River Sediments affected by oil sands operations on embryonic fish
Principal Investigator: Jones, Paul D
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The research team will quantify the effects of exposure of embryonic fish to contaminants released from oilsands operations that may be present in the sediments. The research team will drill a hole in the ice, no more than 12 inches in diameter, and use sediment collection equipment to collect a few centimeters of sediment from the river bed. Local communities will have an opportunity to as...
