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...


Diavik Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: To revisit fixed sample stations at near-field, mid-field and far-field sites over the course of the year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions. The study will encompass the following water based parameters: water quality, zooplankton & phytoplankton biomass and taxonomy, benthic invertebrate analysis and sediment chemistry. This program als...


The Continuation of a Community-led Fish Monitoring Study in Déline, NT 2012
Principal Investigator: Macdonald, Colin R
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009
Summary: To determine the levels of potential chemicals of concern in three major fish species through the analysis of muscle and liver samples for mercury, radionuclides and a number of elements. Fish of three species (lake trout, lake whitefish and lake herring) will be collected in the Keith Arm of Great Bear Lake near the community of Deline. Approximately 15 trout and 10 whitefish and 10 herring wi...
