Project Description:
The purpose of this project is to provide a replacement communcation antenna for the Department of National Defence (DND) at CFS Alert; this project will be contracted through Defence Construction Canada on behalf of DND. The scope of the Alert Cross Loop Replacement project is to install pilings, erect an antenna array, and decommission an existing antenna array. No additional equipment or fuel will be brought to site to carry out the scope of this project; existing infrastructure will provide all required support for this construction. The contractor will send a small team up to Alert to carryout construction/decommissioning; this team will complete the scope of work with the Canadian Armed Forces members and be housed in the existing camp facilities. Water, wastewater, waste disposal, spill contingency planning, and wildlife monitoring will be as stipulated during NIRB and NWB reviews for existing licencing, no additional licencing/permitting is being requested. The Alert Cross Loop Replacement project will consist of the installation of four (4) 30 foot masts, and one (1) 110 foot mast in an “x” pattern, each 30 foot mast will be supported by a rock bolt foundation and three (3) rock bolt anchor points. The 110 foot mast will be supported by a rock bolt foundation and 12 anchor points. The base of each 30 foot tower will be mounted on four (4), two and one third (2.33) inch rock anchors in a four (4) inch cored hole, the base of the 110 foot tower will be mounted on eight (8), two and one third (2.33) inch rock anchors in a four (4) inch cored hole. All anchor points will be one (1) inch rock anchors in a four (4) inch cored hole. The rock anchors for the tower foundations will be held in place by a wet sand slurry back fill for the lower 3600mm and dry sand backfill for the last 1000mm. The rock anchors for the anchor points will be held in place by wet sand slurry for the full length of 3600mm. The existing antenna support structure will be removed after the new antenna is erected and tested to meet operational needs, all material will be removed from site, and disposed of/recycled in accordance with best practices.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
Water, wastewater, waste disposal, spill contingency planning, and wildlife monitoring will be as stipulated during NIRB and NWB reviews for existing licencing for this site, no additional licencing/permitting is being requested. CFS Alert has been in continuous use since 1958, this project is located in previously disturbed area of the base and only temporary limited affects are anticipated. Environmental impacts related to this project could include: temporary limited physical affects to air quality and noise levels, temporary limited biological affects to wildlife, birds and their habitat. Noise and reduced air quality may result in avoidance of the site by transient wildlife.
