PEEL WATERSHED PLANNING REGION:
LMU 3: Central Ogilvie
- Ecological integrity is maintained.
- Sustainable economic development that supports the local economies.
- Land use activity does not significantly impact movement and habitats of caribou.
Rationale for Designation
- Adjacency to the Dempster Highway may allow development to occur more readily with less access-
- Limited wilderness tourism activity reduces potential conflict between industrial and tourism sectors.
- Landscape characteristics makes cumulative effects monitoring more effective in limiting impacts on
- Moderate mineral potential with good access.
- Portion of the Kandik oil and gas basin.
- The high value of this unit for the Porcupine caribou herd, Dall’s sheep, and the people that hunt them calls
for a limited scale of industrial development, thus meriting a Zone III designation.
Cumulative Effects Thresholds
Amount of disturbance relative to the cautionary theshold:
Heritage, Social and Cultural Resources
Special Management Considerations
1. The proposed right-of-way for the Dempster Highway lateral pipeline runs along eastern boundary.
2. Major River Corridor management directions apply along the Ogilvie River.
3. Subsequent Dempster Highway sub-regional land use plan may apply to eastern part of unit – Dempster Corridor to be managed consistent with IMA Zone III objectives.
