Environment and Water Quality Data Associated with Industrial Projects on Land and Offshore for the Northwest Territories - Canada
Entry ID: CANEMRCCRSNWTENVIRO


Summary
Abstract: This dataset includes site location and pollutant concentration. The
pollutants identified are: heavy metals, major elements, microbiological
characteristics, industrial pollutants, oils/hydrocarbons, organic chemicals,
radionuclides and rare earth elements from about 40 projects conducted within
the Northwest Territories. Information on background water quality as well as
the quality of effluent discharged from drilling and mining operations is also
provided.

The data is submitted under act compliance by industry, collected by
the Department or collected by consultants. It is being updated monthly or
annually depending on the project.

Access is on request, with the data available at no charge. The
database is on a WANG computer with custom software.

This database is identified on the Northern Information Network (NIN)
at the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development.

This database was created to provide information to perform
environmental assessments and to monitor industrial projects for compliance
with water quality requirements under the following acts: Northern Inland
Waters, Arctic Waters Pollution Prevention, Territorial Lands, and the Federal
Environmental Assessment and Review Process/Order in Council.
