The Facility is proposed for construction and operation in an existing industrial area. No land clearing will occur nor will any disturbance to the surrounding lands. Any waste generated on site will be managed in accordance with the Cambridge Bay Soil and Water Treatment Facility Waste Management Plan, including appropriate containment and disposal, thus minimizing the potential to attract wildlife. Accordingly, the Facility is expected to have no impacts on vegetation or terrestrial wildlife in the vicinity of the project area.
Baseline soil and groundwater sampling program is planned to occur prior to Facility operation to document existing material quality. The existing and planned facility both possess an engineered liner. Routine Iiner and facility inspections, and in the event of a tear, immediate liner repair, will occur. At the time of closure or lease transfer, soil sampling will occur to document material quality and to confirm that there are no existing or ongoing impacts from the Facility on soil quality. Accordingly, impacts to soil quality in the project area are considered to be negligible.
