Wuskwatim Generation Project - Environmental Monitoring

The Wuskwatim Generation Project is a 200 megawatt hydroelectric generating station on the Burntwood River at the outlet of Wuskwatim Lake in northern Manitoba. Construction on the project began in 2006 and was completed in late 2012. Ownership of the project is by the Wuskwatim Power Limited Partnership, a partnership between Manitoba Hydro and Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN). Under the terms of the project development agreement, Manitoba Hydro manages the operation of the station.

Regulatory approvals to construct the project required that the WPLP develop and implement detailed monitoring programs to measure environmental effects to determine whether effects were as anticipated or further mitigation measures were required.
