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...


Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this research is to document existing environmental conditions surrounding the Kennady North Diamond Project. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to continually monitor lake levels through the open-water season. Hydrology studies will be initiated during the spri...


Environmental Baseline Surveys for the Fortune Minerals Limited NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Schryer, Richard P
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this project is to complete a Supplemental Baseline Monitoring Plan (SBMP) for water quality, fish population and benthic invertebrate programs. The SBMP contains two major study areas: Burke Lake, Reference Lake and the Marian River. Burke Lake will be the exposure area and Reference Lake will serve as the reference area for the SBMP. The exposure area for the Marian River wat...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The objective of this research project are to: 1) improve the understanding of microbial carbon-processing in Mackenzie Delta lakes and how it is affected by the changing water levels; and, 2) to decipher the impact of water level changes on the ability of the Mackenzie Delta to affect riverine nutrient flow to the ocean. This work will help resolve what drives microbial communities in Mackenzi...


A Program to Evaluate Changing Northern Lake Ice Regimes
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this research project is to complete on ice snow depth, ice thickness and composition survey along with collection under ice core water quality and biological information. Sample locations from previous years are located using a handheld GPS. On ice snow depth is measured using a tape measure. An ice auger is used to penetrate the ice cover and evaluate if white ice is present...


Effects of fire on peatland permafrost stability and carbon cycling
Principal Investigator: Olefeldt, David
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The project team intend to study carbon cycling in peatland catchments, in order to determine whether the interactions between wildfire and permafrost thaw causes increased release of greenhouse gases from peatlands and aquatic ecosystems to the atmosphere, and thus cause amplified climate change. Given the overall objective of the project, the team intend to address five research questions: ...


Community-Based Water Quality Monitoring in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Beveridge, Meghan
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The purpose of the project is to work in collaboration with Northwest Territories (NWT) communities to collect water quality data to answer community concerns and questions about the health of NWT waters, to enhance understanding of cumulative impacts and to contribute to decision making. There are three associated objectives: 1) collect water quality data at locations throughout the NWT, to ...


Taltson Hydroelectric Facility Aquatic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licenced Year(s): 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...


Understanding Changes in the Freshwater Ecosystems and Drinking Water in Northern Canada
Principal Investigator: Spicer, Neal
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The Objectives of this research are to: 1) determine where the participating communities obtain their drinking water from within their home and while on the land and why; and determine the areas of each region that are considered valuable and important areas of water quality; and 2) determine what the concerns are concerning the sources of water, both within the homes and natural water sources, ...


Developing New Tools for Assessing Legacy Pollutants and their Ecological Consequences in Lakes Near Northwest Territories Mines
Principal Investigator: Blais, Jules M
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The research team propose to develop tools to assess risks associated with legacy industrial developments in a northern setting. The team will investigate contaminants from the Giant Mine near Yellowknife Northwest Territories (NT), which operated between 1948 and 2004, producing a legacy of contaminants including arsenic, antimony, hydrocarbons, mercury, and others. This remediation strategy appl...
