Notice of Determination

Amix Pile and Float Removal – March 27, 2020

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has determined that the proposed Amix Pile and Float Removal project, located in a water lot adjacent to 12021 Musqueam Drive in Surrey, B.C. is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

This determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • Impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples
  • Indigenous knowledge
  • Community knowledge
  • Comments received from the public
  • Technically and economically feasible mitigation measures

Mitigation measures taken into account for this determination are:

  • Barges and other support vessels will be prevented from grounding on the foreshore, riverbed or otherwise disturb the foreshore or riverbed
  • The works will not negatively affect fish or fish habitat, or release any deleterious substances that would affect fish
  • All piles will be removed completely by extracting the entire length of the pile from the river/seabed. If the condition of the pile prevents the complete removal, the pile will be removed to the extent possible.
  • All construction debris and waste materials will be collected in the immediate working area and disposed of at an appropriately licensed facility
  • The physical activities will be conducted to avoid increasing sedimentation of foreshore and nearshore areas and induced turbidity of local waters

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is satisfied that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Therefore, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
