Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to document existing environmental conditions, in preparation for future regulatory applications Various environmental studies will be initiated each year, according to budgets and information priorities. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to ...


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...


Investigating the water quality of runoff from different terrain types
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The objectives are: 1) to examine how the water quality of streams varies spatially and determine what drives these differences (i.e., latitude, vegetation, surficial geology); and, 2) to examine how the water quality of streams varies temporally and determine what/how seasonal changes in water flow control water quality. The research team will collect water samples from a suite of study site...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The objectives include: 1) Creating a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) developing detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) examining the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level runoff to the Beaufort Sea; 4) examining the effects of coastal erosion and thaw ...


Taltson Hydroelectric Facility Aquatic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licensed Year(s): 2019 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...


Ekati Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Pacholski, Laura J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2019 will be: 1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and 2) 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 sprin...


Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives of the Site Remediation Program (scheduled to be completed in 2019 and 2020) are: 1) to remove and dispose of exposed historic solid waste (including barrels, batteries, debris, wood and other waste); and 2) to finalize construction of a contaminated soil and waste containment structure to contain impacted soil excavated from areas at the site. The 2019 Site activities may includ...


Benthic Macroinvertebrate Monitoring (Slave and Hay Rivers)
Principal Investigator: Levasseur, Annie
Licensed Year(s): 2019 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...


Remote Sensing Water Indicator Monitoring for the Mackenzie and Slave Rivers, and Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Chamberland, Joseph
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The results of this project will add information that will help northern communities, scientists and decision makers answer questions about water quality and changes to rivers and lakes within the NWT. The information generated from this project will provide both baseline and long term water indicator measures for the Slave River, Great Slave Lake (GSL), and the Mackenzie River, which are three of...


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 ...
