Water & Sediment Quality
North/South Consultants Inc. has proven expertise in the design, conduct, and interpretation of aquatic studies and monitoring programs to assess water and sediment quality.
City of Winnipeg: Ammonia Criteria Study
Participated in the design and conduct of studies to determine site-specific ammonia criteria for the Red and Assiniboine rivers in relation to effluent discharges from three water pollution control centers.
Assiniboine River Monitoring Studies
Conducting two studies on the Assinboine River between Brandon and Headingley to assess and monitor the effects of municipal and industrial effluents and to develop water quality models.
Potential Effects of a Sodium Chlorate Facility
Suspended Solids Monitoring During in-River
Conducted several monitoring programs in support of bridge and dock construction projects on the Red, Assiniboine, and LaSalle rivers in southern Manitoba.
Assessment of Lake Sedimentation Rates
Potable Water Claim 138
Assessed effects on raw water quality from physical changes in the environment caused by Lake Winnipeg Regulation and the Churchill River Diversion.
Proposed Keeyask/Gull and Wuskwatim Hydroelectric
Water and sediment quality are components of the environmental studies for these proposed hydroelectric developments.
Assessment of Winnipeg International Airport Operations
on Surface Water Quality
Conducted investigations of water quality in Truro and Omand's creeks in relation to airport runoff. Much of the focus of these investigations was on ethylene and propylene glycol based de-icing fluids and their degradation products.
Assessment of Sediment Contamination in Clear Lake
Determined levels of metals, hydrocarbons, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in lake sediments to assess the extent of sediment contamination and determine potential options for dredgeate disposal. Results were compared with relevant sediment quality guidelines.
Water Flow, Nutrients, and Algae in a River in Eastern Manitoba
Calculated nutrient loading and its effects on water chemistry and algal blooms.
Hydrological, Chemical, and Biological Investigations
of the Churchill River Estuary
Environmental Assessment and Biological Investigation
of the Nelson River Estuary
Conducted a two-year multidisciplinary biological study of the Nelson River estuary to describe the physical, chemical, and biological features of the estuary, prior to completion of the Limestone generating station and initiation of hydroelectric developments at Conawapa.
