Associated Environmental completed environmental baseline studies for a road extension for a proposed copper-molybdenum-gold mine northwest of Whitehorse. An Environmental Assessment (EA) was required to facilitate project approval by the Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Board and subsequent permitting. Studies included a spring breeding-bird survey, review and summary of existing fisheries information, fish and fish habitat assessment at more than 20 proposed stream crossings, and landform/terrain mapping.
As part of the Whatshan Generating Station Water Use Plan, BC Hydro is required to complete a fish salvage in the Lower Whatshan River following the ceastation of spill events at Whatshan Dam. Associated has completed fish salvage operations since 2002.
To support the submission of an Environmental Assessment Certificate application for a proposed metallurgical coal mine, Associated Environmental completed the terrestrial baseline assessments including the ecosystem, vegetation and wildlife studies, and Reclamation Plan for the study area.
Associated led the delivery of a Long-Term Monitoring Plan for six run-of-river hydroelectric facilities located in the Harrison and Stave watersheds. As specified in the facilities’ Conditional Water Licence Authorizations and under the Fisheries Act, implementation of the Long-Term Monitoring Plan is required for the first 5 years of operation, followed by continued data analysis.
