Description: 

A survey of muskrat pushups was conducted in spring 2013 along the Slave River
from just north of Fort Chipewyan to Great Slave Lake. Densities and abundance
of pushups were highest in the Slave River Delta, where wetlands provide good
muskrat habitat. The survey provides a baseline of information that can be compared
to future surveys, and enables environmental change to be tracked over time.
The NWT Environmental Research Bulletins (NERB) are series of brief plain language summaries of various environmental research findings in the Northwest Territories. If you’re conducting environmental research in the NWT, consider sharing your information with northern residents in a bulletin. These research summaries are also of use to northern resource decision-makers.

Muskrat pushup abundance along the Slave River
This project was a Slave River and Delta Partnership1 (SRDP) led initiative, a collaboration of many partners. The SRDP also collaborated with the Peace-Athabasca Delta Ecological Monitoring Program and Parks Canada who were undertaking a survey of the Peace-Athabasca Delta and Alberta stem of the
Slave River.

The NWT Water Stewardship Strategy Northern Voices, Northern Waters: the NWT Water Stewardship Strategy (NWT Water Stewardship Strategy) was released in May 2010.
The NWT Water Stewardship Strategy is a made in the north strategy intended to guide effective, long-term stewardship of NWT water resources. One of the “Keys to Success” in the NWT Water Stewardship Strategy is the establishment of “a pilot study for community source water protection planning that links aquatic ecosystem indicator development and community-based monitoring.” In response to this “Key to Success”, the Government
of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) initiated a document to assist communities in the preparation of source water protection planning. This 2012 Source Water Assessment and Protection (SWAP) program document is the outcome.
