Telus Communications Inc. New Radiocommunications Tower SW-33 (AB000851 B-0493-23)

Tallcree First Nation plans to build a Telus telecommunications tower to service the community. The project will require an access road to be constructed off highway 88 in Tallcree South Once complete the total site area will be 915 m2 and contain a tower structure and 12 x 12 ft shelter. Construction activities include vegetation clearing, drilling for concrete piers, and concrete piers poured for the shelter and tower foundations. Fill materials will include gravel and wash rock.

Development of the tower/utility right-of-way (ROW) site will include permanent and temporary impacts to a wetland. The wetland is classified as a large wooded mixedwood swamp (S-Wm). Permanent impacts will be limited to the footprint of the tower site, its associated anchors, and access road, totaling 0.064 ha (0.1% of the wetland). Temporary impacts will include vegetation removal within the entire tower site, totaling 3.526 ha (5.7 % of the wetland). Once construction is completed, temporarily impacted areas will be permitted to naturally re-vegetate. Vegetation around the tower structure and anchors will be periodically cleared to support access and maintenance.
