Bathurst/High Arctic Remediation and Risk Management Project (148489)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Mr. Michael
Company: Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada
Schedule:
Start Date: 2017-07-15
End Date: 2017-09-28
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The Bathurst/High Arctic Remediation and Risk Management Project takes place over a number of sites in the North Baffin Planning Region, with the nearest community being Resolute Bay, Nunavut. All the sites for which work is to occur on are on Crown Land. Contamination at both the High Arctic and Bathurst sites are largely a result of oil and gas exploration activities. Based on the findings of Phase III Environmental Site Assessments, Remedial and Risk Management Plans were developed for both the High Arctic and Bathurst sites. For efficiency and cost effectiveness, these two projects have been combined into one. This project is proposed to take place from mid-July to mid- September 2017. A temporary camp will be set up at Ile Vanier which will house no more than 20 people. Water usage for this project will largely be for camp operations and will not exceed 3.5 m3/day. The airstrip at this location will be repaired in order to support mobilization/demobiliztion for this project using heavy lift aircraft. Access to the other Bathurst/High Arctic sites to complete minor remediation/risk management work will be done using helicopters, and smaller aircraft from the main camp at Ile Vanier The key activities that will take place as part of this project are as follows: - temporary camp set-up and operation at Ile Vanier - posting of warning signs at 6 High Arctic and 9 Bathurst sites - asbestos abatement - off-site hazmat disposal - small engineered cap of metals and PHC impacted soils - collection and off-site disposal of PCB, metals and PHC soils - incineration of organic liquids
