Description: 

The 2017 Alberta-NWT Transboundary Water Quantity Technical Report provides an overview of 2017 water quantity data in the Hay and Slave River basins. Total annual streamflow in the Slave River in 2017 was slightly above average (105% of normal) while total annual flow in the Hay River was lower than average (46% of normal). On the Slave River annual consumptive use was well below 2 billion m3 , at 1.03 billion m3 . The pre-defined threshold of 2 billion m3 remained at 1.9% of the long term mean annual streamflow. On the Hay River, the total volume of groundwater and surface water licences exceeded 2.5% of the natural flows at the border in November, December, February, and March. This exceeded Trigger 1 and prompted analysis of Trigger 2. Actual water use was less than 1% of the natural flow at the border in all months, which was lower than the Trigger 2 threshold of 4% and also lower than the interim objective of 5%.

Description: 

Ever wonder how to easily track wildlife in the winter? A pilot study in the Sahtu Region collected such information helping to achieve the regional coverage necessary for monitoring changes to wildlife distribution brought about by industrial development, natural disturbance and climate change. Environment and Natural Resources’ issue #15 of the NWT al Research Bulletin (NERB) series is now available and highlights Tracking Wildlife in the Sahtu Region. Bulletins are issued regularly here to provide a summary of research findings or concepts for NWT residents and northern resource decision makers. Please feel free to circulate broadly.
