Taltson Hydroelectric Facility Aquatic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: 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 monitoring to determine the best operating procedure for the ann...


Assessing regulators' information needs to make decisions regarding cumulative effects under the MVRMA
Principal Investigator: Noble, Bram F
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: This project will determine what information Regulators require about cumulative effects or conditions in order to make informed decisions regarding development impacts to water quality in the NWT, and whether and how that information is, or can be, provided through NWT Cumulative Impacts Monitoring Program (CIMP) or other agencies responsible for monitoring. The objectives are as follows: 1)...


Community-based long-term monitoring of the Peel River near Fort McPherson
Principal Investigator: Moore, Jonathan
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to establish a community-based monitoring program in the Peel River watershed, based in Fort McPherson. Previous research has shown that multiple whitefish ecotypes (non-anadromous, semi-anadromous and anadromous, utilize the Peel River as spawning habitat, but it is unclear how much each ecotype contributes to harvester catches. As different ecotypes occupy d...


Ekati Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Pacholski, Laura J
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2018 will be to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality, and 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 of spring fresh...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Kramers, Patrick
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to obtain information on the environment once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies (further defined below) are designed...


Benthic Macroinvertebrate Monitoring (Slave and Hay Rivers)
Principal Investigator: Levasseur, Annie
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project is to establish a baseline for benthic invertebrates’ community structure and composition in the transboundary reaches of the Slave and Hay Rivers and to track their status and conditions over time to assess ecosystem health and provide an early warning of change or stress in the environment. The monitoring plan involves selecting and sampling several 500m long re...


Using the past to inform the future: A paleoecological perspective of the impacts of drought and fire on lakes, permafrost and forests
Principal Investigator: Pisaric, Michael FJ
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this research are to examine the frequency and severity of past wildfire and drought (drought-like) conditions in the southern Northwest Territories. Specifically, the research team will examine the following questions: 1) how frequent and severe have fires been in the past; 2) are fires becoming more frequent/severe due to the impacts of climate change; 3) what impact does wildf...


A multidisciplinary investigation of recovery in Yellowknife area lakes from 50 years of arsenic pollution: What are the factors inhibiting recovery and the biological consequences?
Principal Investigator: Palmer, Mike
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The overarching objectives of this research are two-fold: 1) to investigate watershed and within-lake abiotic processes affecting the recovery of mine-impacted lakes in the Yellowknife area, including storage and release of arsenic from soils, seasonal dynamics of arsenic export in runoff, and fluxes of arsenic to and from lake sediments; and 2) to investigate the toxicological consequences of...


The Arctic Great Rivers Observatory III
Principal Investigator: Holmes, Robert Max
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The Arctic Great Rivers Observatory project studies the six largest rivers in the Arctic: the Mackenzie and Yukon Rivers in North America, and the Ob', Yenisey, Lena, and Kolyma Rivers in Russia. We are interested in how climate change is impacting Arctic rivers. The research team will take measurements of the concentration of naturally-occurring chemicals (like carbon and nitrogen) and try to det...


Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives of the Site Remediation Program (scheduled to be completed in 2018) are to: 1. Remove and dispose of exposed solid waste (including barrels, batteries, debris, wood, other waste and an existing building); and, 2. Construct a contaminated soil and waste containment structure to contain impacted soil excavated from areas at the site. The 2018 Site activities will include several in...
