GW Solutions has designed and delivered several presentations to the Vuntut Gwinchin First Nation (Old Crow), the Nacho Nyak Dun First Nation (Mayo), the Liard First Nation (Watson Lake), and the Kwanlin Dun First Nation (Whitehorse).
The presentations included information about the hydrological and hydrogeological setting in the various regions, the level of knowledge about groundwater, aquifers and watersheds. The principles of extraction of shale gas and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) were also presented. Finally, potential issues and effects on watersheds due to fracking operations and loss of well integrity were introduced.
A similar presentation was given to the Select Committee on Hydraulic Fracturing from the Yukon Legislative Assembly, to whom Dr. Gilles Wendling was invited to present (January 2014, Whitehorse).
