Rail Expansion with Tent

August 18, 2020 – The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has determined that the proposed Rail Expansion with Tent located at 1545 Bay Street, North Vancouver, 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

Mitigation measures taken into account for this determination are:

  • A spill prevention, containment and clean-up plan will be developed for the project, be available in the immediate working area, and project personnel will be trained on spill prevention, containment, and clean-up
  • If soil contamination is encountered during excavation, the contamination will be contained and disposed at appropriate licensed off-site facilities.
  • All construction equipment will be environmentally clean and properly maintained to prevent spills, invasive species, and noxious weeds
  • Sediment and erosion control measures will be in place for the Project
  • The works will not deposit a deleterious substance in water inhabited by fish, or affect fish or fish habitat in a manner contrary to the Fisheries Act
  • All construction debris and waste materials will be collected in the immediate working area and disposed of at an appropriately licensed facility
  • No refueling or maintenance activities will be conducted within 30 metres of a waterbody or in areas where run-off may potentially reach a waterbody.

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.
