Maintenance dredging - Coastland Wood Industries

Coastland Wood Industries are proposing to undertake maintenance dredging at their Annacis Marine Terminal located at 404 Salter Street New Westminster. The dredge area would be approximately 3,015 square metres and the targeted dredge grade would be approximately -3.6 metres chart datum, consistent with previous dredging works. The total dredge volume is anticipated to be no more than approximately 4,000 cubic metres per year. A clamshell dredge situated on a marine spud derrick would be used to conduct the works.

Dredge material would be disposed of at sea under a valid Disposal at Sea permit or would be placed upland for later reuse, or disposal (i.e., depending on material suitability and demand at the time) in accordance with applicable regulations.

Maintenance dredging is typically conducted every two to three years at this location. The facility would not be able to maintain their operations without conducting these works.
