Project Description:
The development of a protected small craft harbour in Pond Inlet has been studied since the 1990s, with over ten layout options considered in that time. The Government of Nunavut (GN), through Community and Government Services, intends to construct a new small craft harbour (the Project) in Pond Inlet. The Project is located on 12 hectares of land situated along the shoreline of the Hamlet of Pond Inlet on Eclipse Sound and across from Bylot Island at an approximate latitude of 77° 58’ 54” W and a longitude of 72° 41’ 49” N near the existing breakwater. Community input was solicited and used to refine the project design. The current location was selected as the most favourable site because it has marine access adjacent to the community and has been used for decades for boat launching with one section also being used for sealift activities. The Project will improve the existing boat ramp and the overall safety of marine activities in the community by providing a protected harbour for recreational users, hunters and fishermen, cruise ship tender boats, and it will further segregate small craft activities from sealift operation. Potentially, it may support the development of commercial fishery. The permanent components of the Project include new breakwaters, a fixed small craft wharf, a boat launch ramp, small craft floating docks, a sealift landing ramp, and a laydown area used for sealift storage, boat storage, and parking. The existing breakwater will be used to extend the new facilities. Supporting project activities during construction include the development of a quarry to source fill material and potentially a new quarry access road. Construction is anticipated to be completed within two years from the start of construction in summer 2018, concluding in fall 2019. During the construction, the Project will utilize the existing scheduled sealift deliveries and scheduled flights, with the potential for limited use of charter flights. Fuel, potable water, sanitary and solid waste disposal are anticipated to use existing facilities operated by the Hamlet of Pond Inlet and the GN. Work crew accommodations will be provided by local businesses.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
Potential Environmental Effects Potential environmental impacts that may occur during the construction and operation of the SCH include the following:  Accidental leaks and spillages of substances such as fuel or petroleum-based lubricants to the environment;  Disturbance of terrestrial and marine wildlife;  Loss of fish habitat;  Changes to traffic patterns;  Disruption of marine and terrestrial land uses;  Increased noise, light and dust related to construction activities; and  Increased pressure on community infrastructure and support services. Mitigation Measures Environmental management plans will be implemented to mitigate potential effects of the Project on the environment. The environmental management plans will include but will not be limited to:  Construction Environmental Management Plan  Spill Response Plan Mitigation measures will be detailed in the environmental management plans.

 Hello - I had quite a few technology problems with this application. The questionaire would not load (so I attached it) because the functionality regarding designating land ownership and uses was not working. Therefore, the additional tab did not show up as it was supposed to. Please contact me with any questions or additonal information that you may need.
