This engagement has concluded 

What is this engagement about?

With fluctuating water levels and increased usage, the Prelude and Prosperous Boat Launches are in need of replacement.

How was engagement gathered?

Two public meetings were held on September 13, 2018 from 1215-1pm and 5:15 to 6pm for residents, members of the public, and any other stakeholders to share their feedback on preliminary plans.

Those who could not attend were encouraged to email the GNWT's Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment - North Slave Region with any questions, clarifications, or comments.

How were participants made informed and aware?

A short background information item was shared on the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment's website and distributed via social media, newspaper and social media advertisement, direct outreach to known stakeholders, and at the engagement sessions themselves.

Summary of findings

In the Q+A bar, you can find a summary of key areas of inquiry which arose in submissions, and the Department's response to each of them.

What's Next?

The Department has collected feedback for consideration as the project moves to the design phase. New drawings will be shared once they are available to inform those interested ahead of the construction process.

    Prelude Lake — Can a pipe for drinking water be installed? Raised by: Prelude Residents and Cabin Owners

    about 2 years ago

    A water pipe is not an option as it would freeze in the winter and the Department could not be responsible for the maintenance and cleanliness of this type of water source.

    Prelude Lake — Existing boat launch and parking just needs to be policed. Raised by: Prelude Residents and Cabin Owners

    about 2 years ago

    The Department can place clearer signage so people know to not tie up the launch area. Enforcement can be increased to address parking lot issues.

    Prelude Lake — In winter time, people drive down the small boat ramp at the end of the breakwater to get onto the lake and ice roads. Raised by: Prelude Residents and Cabin Owners

    about 2 years ago

    There are other access points that can be looked at for winter. Perhaps removing some of the rock barriers to allow snow machines and vehicles alternate access.

    Prelude Lake — The turn around will have to be too big at the end of the breakwater to accommodate trucks, boats and trailers.The beach area may be encroached on. Raised By: Prelude Residents and Cabin Owners

    about 2 years ago

    The design team will determine what size of turnaround is necessary and what infrastructure will fit in the area. Mock ups are based on a truck, trailer and 24’ boat.

    The beach area is important and will be preserved.

    Prelude Lake — Drinking water quality may be bad during construction with lake water being stirred up. Raised by: Prelude Residents and Cabin Owners

    about 2 years ago

    The piles will need to be installed with equipment on the ice, so piles will not be installed until the ice is thick enough. At this time residents can drive further out on the lake to retrieve water.
