PRINCE GEORGE IGU

Jesse M.
The Prince George Interior Gas Upgrade (IGU) project involved scheduled infrastructure upgrades to the Fortis natural gas pipeline. LTNE delivered environmental services including environmental monitoring and wildlife surveys for the project.

Through Fortis BC’s commitment to enhancing the Nation’s capacity, the project was specifically designed to mentor a junior Lheidli T’enneh member in environmental monitoring. By the end of the project, the individual was conducting independent field visits with senior technical support.

NECHAKO RIVER LONG-TERM WATER QUALITY MONITORING

Jesse M.
Environment Canada operates many long-term water quality stations across the country. The Nechako River station in Prince George has been in operation for over 40 years with bi-weekly sampling. LTNE has been conducting the sampling since 2020. A Lheidli T’enneh member has conducted the sampling for much of this duration. This sampling requires following proper procedures to ensure consistent data over the decades long data set.

WATERCOURSE ASSESSMENTS FOR RIPARIAN PROTECTION DEVELOPMENT PERMITS

Jesse M.
Detailed watercourse assessments are required as part of a Riparian Protection Development Permit Application for landowners or developers within the riparian area of a fish bearing watercourse in Prince George. These assessments are conducted by Qualified Professionals (QPs) to assess the risk of development on the watercourse and riparian values. A primary outcome of these assessments, along with a top of bank survey, is a recommendation by the QP for an appropriate riparian setback distance to mitigate development risks. LTNE has provided several of these to various clients to assist them with their permit applications.
