The Proposed Project

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority proposes to conduct maintenance dredging in the berths at the Centerm Terminal at 777 Centennial Road, Vancouver, B.C. The project consists of dredging no more than 10,000 cubic meters at Centerm berths 5 and 6. The dredge footprint consists of the removal of irregular higher areas of sediment that have accumulated within berths 5 and 6. The proposed works will be completed with a marine spud derrick equipped with a clamshell bucket. Dredged material will be loaded onto a scow and transported to the Point Grey disposal at sea site. Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a Disposal at Sea permit no. 4543-2-03719 to the permit holder on January 23, 2018. If approved, the dredging is scheduled for September 1. Work will take up to 10 days over three months, and will occur within the least risk fisheries window.
