Notice of Determination 

Langley, B.C. – December 1, 2021 – The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has determined that the proposed S&R Sawmills - D-Mill Urgent Bank Stabilization located at 19791 101 Avenue, Langley, 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:  

  • A qualified environmental professional will be retained to monitor works and activities with the potential to negatively affect fish or fish habitat 
  • The physical activities will be conducted in a manner that avoids increasing sedimentation of foreshore and nearshore areas and induced turbidity of local waters 
  • All activities will be completed in the dry, i.e., above the water surface  
  • Any invasive plants will be managed in a manner that prevents their spread 
  • Soils excavated from the project site that are not suitable for backfill will be disposed of at appropriate off-site facilities 
  • Any suspected contaminated materials will be contained, tested and disposed of at appropriate licensed off-site facilities 
  • Soils and other materials brought to the site will be clean and free of environmental contamination, invasive species, and noxious weeds 
  • Construction equipment will be environmentally clean and properly maintained to prevent spills, invasive species, and noxious weeds 

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.
