So far I've read two articles on the project.

Here is one but they both say the same thing essentially:

https://www.google.ca/amp/www.thetelegr ... s.amp.html

NOTHING mentioned of the consequences of flooding.

Here is a dumbed down version (cause it was easier for me to understand) from a masters student:

"Apparently the area they're planning to flood has high levels of mercury in the vegetation and topsoil, and when they flood it'll turn it into methyl mercury, which ya is really easily absorbed by us and the fish. I guess it'll feed into a lake where lots of Inuit people live and rely on fish and seals"

Simple but to the point.
