ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

WesPac Midstream – Vancouver has filed an environmental assessment application with the Environmental Assessment Office of BC. The project is now in the application review phase, which provides a forum for Indigenous communities, regulatory agencies, stakeholders and the general public to review and comment on our project and application. As part of this process we will work to address the concerns that are raised and we anticipate this process will require at a minimum the following technical assessments:

  • Fisheries, Aquatic Resources and Water Quality
  • Terrestrial Wildlife and Vegetation;
  • Air and Climate Change;
  • Screening Level Contaminated Sites;
  • Marine Geo-Hazard;
  • Socioeconomic;
  • Marine Navigation;
  • Aesthetics;
  • Archaeological, Historical and Heritage;
  • Resources;
  • Noise;
  • Public Health

CONSULTATION

We’re committed to consulting with Indigenous communities and our project team has met in person with most of the local First Nations with traditional territory in the vicinity of the project. These communities have provided input into the project at various stages of development.

This process has helped us better understand the history and significance of the land and people of the area, which has resulted in some design changes to limit environmental impacts. As the project moves forward, Indigenous communities will have opportunities for training and employment, business procurement and ongoing monitoring.

HOW WILL MY INPUT BE CONSIDERED?

We’re listening to the comments we’re receiving and are committed to developing strategies to limit our impact on the surrounding community through the design and operation of Tilbury Pacific. We’re documenting this feedback to include in the project records submitted during regulatory reviews.

In fact, the Tilbury Pacific project team has already made some significant changes to the project to minimize the impact on the local environment and marine life. Examples include:

  • Reducing the trestle length and width
  • Using grating on the walkways to allow 70% more sunlight to pass through, minimizing shading effects to marine life
