Tlicho All-Season Road
Principal Investigator: Walmsley, Caroline
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4587. The objective is to conduct monitor 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 inc...


Further Examination of the Bio- Magnification of Mercury within Fish Species and watersheds of the Deh Cho and Their Varying Levels Among Lakes
Principal Investigator: Low, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4590. The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine why fish mercury levels vary among lakes in the Dehcho region; 2) to identify best predictors of fish mercury levels; 3) to determine with fish have the lowest levels of mercury and the highest levels of nutrients; and, 4) to collect data on parameters that ...


ITH Metal Chemistry
Principal Investigator: Gammon, Paul R
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4544. The objectives of this research are: 1) To investigate the environmental chemistry of the borrow pits and immediate surrounding areas to determine what, if any, environmental risk do the elevated concentrations represent; 2) To investigate the environmental chemistry of an undisturbed area around the Inuvik to Tukto...


Estimating Aquatic Species Physiological Limits (ASPL) through a Forage Fish Monitoring and Observation (FFMO) program in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR)
Principal Investigator: Steiner, Nadja
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4554. The 3 year project objective is to conduct underwater eco-physiological monitoring in remote Inuvialuit coastal areas in both summer and winter seasons. This will result in critical benchmark data with emphasis on coastal forage fish species during rapid climate change. Another project off-shoot will be a self-suffici...


Alberta-Northwest Territories Transboundary Fish Monitoring Program: Slave River
Principal Investigator: Beveridge, Meghan
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4548. The objectives of the fish monitoring program are to: a) Repeat the contaminant and fish indicator sampling that occurred during historical (1990-1995 and 2011-2015) programs; b) Expand the species list to include fish sampled under the Oil Sands Monitoring, which would provide fish health indicators in the Athabasc...

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 ...


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 “...
