DOCTORAUJLA PERSONNEL HAVE EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN A WIDE RANGE OF AREAS.
The following section provides a partial list of the projects completed successfully.
Sediment Control Facility, BC A sediment control facility was designed and constructed for a development site impacting a nearby fish-bearing creek.
New Westminster, B.C. Fish, sediments and water quality samples were collected from several sites on the Fraser River as part of the first cycle of their Environmental Effects Monitoring program. Sentinel fish specimens from potentially impacted and reference areas were captured, weighed, measured and liver, gall bladders and gonads were removed for analytical analysis. These fish samples were ranked using a quantitative general fish health assessment index. Benthic invertebrate samples were sieved, sorted and identified for species composition and relative abundance indices.
New Westminster, B.C. Conducted the fish, sediment and water quality sampling in the vicinity of the mill outfall for their first cycle EEM program. Chronic toxicity testing was carried out on mill effluent using the Selenastrum capricornutum algal growth inhibition assay, Ceriodaphnia dubia survival and reproductive test and Fish early life stage test using rainbow trout eggs. Sentinel fish species selected for analysis were Starry flounders, Staghorn Sculpins and Prickly Sculpins.
