The Proposed Project

Neptune Bulk Terminals (Canada) Ltd. proposes to conduct maintenance dredging at Berth 2 and 3 of its terminal in North Vancouver. The purpose of the project is to dredge and remove accumulated sediment to achieve appropriate vessel clearance at the berth. The scope of works includes dredging of approximately 18 cubic metres of sediment at both Berth 2 and 3. Dredging is proposed to be completed by clamshell environmental bucket to mitigate increased turbidity. Dredge material will be disposed of at an appropriate upland facility. The project is proposed to commence in late August 2020 and would be completed within the least risk fish window for Burrard Inlet.
