Environmental Monitoring

The Environmental Monitoring Plans are designed to measure the actual effects of the Keeyask Generation Project, test predictions or identify unanticipated effects. During the course of the environmental impact assessment, numerous requirements for monitoring were identified.

Both technical science monitoring and Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge (ATK) monitoring will be undertaken. The technical science monitoring will be conducted by Manitoba Hydro and specialized consultants contracted by Manitoba Hydro, who will hire members of the Keeyask Cree Nations to work with them to fulfill the monitoring activities. Manitoba Hydro will also have contracts with each of the Keeyask Cree Nations to undertake ATK monitoring of the Project.
