Fate of heavy metals in lagoon and wetland wastewater treatment systems and quantification of relative impacts to downstream aquatic systems
Principal Investigator: Jamieson, Rob
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4511. The overall objective of this study is improved understanding of heavy metals in Sewage Disposal Facilities (SDFs) and Solid Waste Disposal Facilities (SWDFs) in the NWT. The proposed study aims to answer the following questions: 1) What is the existing treatment capacity of SDFs in NWT for heavy metals? 2) Are SDFs “...

Water Quality Monitoring in Tlicho Region, NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Pacunayen, Jessica L
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The overarching goal for this project is to understand how decision-making bodies can make the best use of water quality data from pre-existing water monitoring programs collected by various agencies within the Tlicho region now and in the future. In order to achieve this goal, the Principal Investigator (PI) plans to understand how decision-making bodies within the Tlicho region currently use wat...

Studies of methane release from lakes in the Mackenzie Delta and on Richards Island
Principal Investigator: Orcutt, Beth N
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The focus of this one-year-long project is to collect an additional annual record of methane release from nine different lakes in the Mackenzie Delta and Richards Island area, with a focus on capturing a full ice in/ice out cycle, to determine how much methane is released from lakes under different conditions and how microorganisms increase or decrease methane release. This annual record will allo...

Arctic Red River Headwaters (ARRH) Fisheries Assessment
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licensed Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to determine what fish species are present in the Arctic Red River Headwaters (AARH), and what areas in the Arctic Red River Headwaters are important fish habitats. The intent is to use varying fisheries assessment techniques (angling, electofishing and gillnetting) to assess various suitable habitats in the ARRH for the presence of fish. Sites will b...

SWEEP - The Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program
Principal Investigator: Bharadwaj, Lalita A
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: In collaboration with the Slave River and Delta Partnership (SRDP) and local communities, the research team will develop a Community Based Monitoring (CBM) program titled the Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program (SWEEP), to empower communities to collect, interpret and use a system of environmental indicators to address these priorities. The focus will be on indicators of cumulative effec...

The prospects for collaborative approaches to transboundary water governance: the Mackenzie River Basin, Canada
Principal Investigator: Morris, Michelle J
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The primary objective of this research is to determine the extent to which collaboration can contribute to socially and environmentally sustainable transboundary water governance where power asymmetries exist. A secondary objective is to identify strategies and tactics that can be used by less powerful actors to achieve their goals in water management agreements. Data will be collected via sem...

EL462 and EL463 - Regional Hydrology and Surface Water Quality Sampling
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: to establish baseline water quality, water levels and flow conditions; and to evaluate potential changes in water quality and quantity before and after initiation of site operations. A desktop regional hydrological assessment will be conducted by analyzing existing Water Survey of Canada hydrometric data for stations situated near the area of investi...

Investigating the cumulative effects of environmental change and human activity in the Tathlina watershed
Principal Investigator: Laidlaw, Shawn
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The purpose of this project is to: 1) coordinate monitoring and research efforts in the watershed between the community, government, and universities; 2) understand current aquatic health of the watershed using water quality, macroinvertebrates, aquatic furbearers and fish as indicators of ecosystem health; 3) understand historical environmental change and contaminant loading in the watershe...

Towards Long-term Monitoring of the CO2 System in Arctic Rivers
Principal Investigator: Wang, Zhaohui 'Aleck'
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this research project is to make time-series measurements of the CO2 system in the Mackenzie River, near Inuvik, Northwest Territories. Monthly water sampling is taking place at the Mackenzie River near Inuvik by technicians from the Aurora Research Institute. Data will be shared with local communities for education purposes as well as annual reports and publications made avail...

Geochemical and mineralogical controls on the low-temperature aqueous mobility of rare earth elements (REE) in mine waste from the Nechalacho deposit, NWT
Principal Investigator: Purdy, Colin
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine what controls whether rare earth elements are mobile under low temperature and moderate to high pH conditions. Four 55 gallon barrels cut in half will be set up at Thor Lake with mine tailings in them. The tailings will be allowed to weather in the local environment. Samples of the tailings and waters in them will be sampled at the beginning, and then...
