MLi3 was hired through a multi-government process to champion a phased Ecological Monitoring Plan on a hydro-impacted water way. Phase 1 of a multi-phased process developed recommendations for a conceptual Ecological Monitoring program for identifying opportunities for localized incremental small-scale interventions able to mitigate hydro-electrical generation impacts on Sipiwesk Lake in Northern Manitoba. Phase 2’s program will begin after community consultations intended to improve the conceptual plan. The Phase 2 program will test, refine, and improve the logistics of Phase 1’s conceptual design. It is planned to be launched in the summer of 2018.
