Description: 

The NWT State of the Conservation Network Report includes comprehensive data and
information from best available sources, which is used to report on indicators and provide a baseline
of comparison for future progress. This first Report focuses solely on protected areas as criteria exist
for protected areas and they are well defined in the NWT. As the NWT progresses with defining specific
criteria for areas to be part of the conservation network, future reports will report on the conservation
network as a whole.

Description: 

An evaluation of the current status and trends of water chemistry and flow in the Coppermine and Lockhart Rivers’ watersheds. Data was assessed for seasonal and spatial differences and temporal trends and compared to relevant guidelines. This assessment supports cumulative impact assessment of water quality and quantity in the North Slave region of the Northwest Territories, helps to address downstream community concerns, and supports the development of water quality objectives for trans-boundary agreements with Nunavut. The historic and existing monitoring programs in these watersheds was also evaluated to determine if the program was adequate for detecting potential spatial and temporal changes in water chemistry.
