Yukon Energy - Southern Lakes
Southern Lakes Raise in Elevation
Yukon Energy is proposing to modify the controlled high and low water level of the Yukon Southern Lakes to increase the hydroelectric energy potential of its hydro power facility. GW Solutions was retained by Yukon Energy and the Southern Lakes Water Level Committee to review historical information, hydrogeological studies completed by others, to visit the area, meet local residents and express a professional opinion about the potential impacts the modification of the lake regime would have on local groundwater and aquifers. The results were presented during a public presentation in Tagish, Yukon.
