Description

Athabasca Basin: Tailings

Tailing Ponds and Impacts on Aquifers
This project invites Indigenous Communities to work with a team of hydrogeologists (groundwater scientists) to develop a new data tool. The Data Visualization Tool will show surface water quality, ground water quality, and locations where there is interaction between surface and ground water. We will produce a tool to look at these interactions with a click on a map, showing where tailings ponds may be leaking down into groundwater and back up into important fresh water sources. With our partners, the First Nations Technical Services Advisory Group, we hope to assist communities to increase capacity for Community Based Water Monitoring programs.
