Installation of Eight Steel Pipe Piles – Project Permit No. 18-184 – Extension to the Expiry Date – Public Comments Invited

March 3, 2020 – As part of its Project and Environmental Review process, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority must determine whether the proposed extension to the expiry date of the approved Installation of Eight Steel Pipe Piles (Project Permit No. 18-184), located in Burnaby, B.C., is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

To help inform this determination and a decision on whether or not to approve the proposed project, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is inviting comments from the public respecting that determination. All comments received will be considered public and may be posted online. For more information, individuals should consult the Privacy Notice on the Registry website.

The Proposed Project

The permit holder, Island Tug and Barge Limited, proposes to carry out physical activities related to the installation of eight steel pipe piles up until March 31, 2021. The installation has been delayed for various reasons and therefore an extension to the permit is required to complete the work. This would require an extension to the approved Installation of Eight Steel Pipe Piles project permit (No. 18-118), which has an expiry date of May 31, 2020.

The installation of the piles at the permit holder's facility is for the purpose of vessel moorage and vessel to vessel fuel lightering.
