Ekati Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Pacholski, Laura J
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4886. The main objectives of the field work for 2021 will be to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment, wildlife, 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 unde...

Methods used are outlined in the management and monitoring plans (aquatic effects monitoring program, water management plan [s...


Tlicho All Season Road
Principal Investigator: Walmsley, Caroline
Licensed Year(s): 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4710. The objective is to conduct monitoring to ensure that the project is overall compliant with the environmental permit and approval conditions and requirements. Water monitoring at water crossing locations will be required for any in-water construction and where there is potential for entrainment of sediments. This i...


Taltson Twin Gorges Hydro Generating Facility Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program (AEMP) 2019
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4565. The objective of this project is to conduct Aquatic Effects Monitoring. This will include three parts: 1) Riparian Habitat and Fish Usage Assessment. This is a study to monitor the trends and fluctuations of the aquatic environment along the riparian zones within the Taltson River from Nonacho Lake to Twin Gorges ...


Con Mine 2019 Supplemental Benthic Invertebrate Sampling Study
Principal Investigator: Irving, Elaine
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4574. The objective is to sample benthic invertebrates in Jackfish Bay (exposure area) and Kam Bay (reference area), to confirm benthic results from 2018 and determine if treated Con Mine effluent is affecting the benthic community in Jackfish Bay. Benthic invertebrate samples will be collected at five stations in each ...


NSERC Canadian Lake Pulse Network: more than 660 Canadian lakes sampled over three summers.
Principal Investigator: Huot, Yannick
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this project is to evaluate and compare complex and abundant lake ecosystems. This will be addressed through answering these 4 core questions: 1. Where, by how much and why Canadian lakes have changed during the last centuries? 2. How do taxonomic, molecular and biochemical features of planktonic, benthic and microbial communities change with lake alteration and which ones can...


Howards Pass Access Road (HPAR) Proposed 2019 Baseline Programs
Principal Investigator: Morison, Stephen R
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Proposed surface water and sediment quality and quantity programs involves two rounds of field sampling proposed in mid-July to early August and in late September 2019, to capture typical summer stream flows and low stream flow conditions. Each field program may take between eight to ten days. The objectives of the programs are to confirm and update the fluvial geomorphic classification of each st...


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
Licensed Year(s): 2019 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 ...
