This extension will allow the Applicant to carry out physical activities related to the completion of site upgrades at Lynnterm.

As part of the Project and Environmental Review for the proposed project under the Impact Assessment Act, the proposed project is posted on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry here with an opportunity for public comment between February 7, 2020 to March 7, 2020.

About the Project

The extension is being requested as a result of project scheduling delays. The scope of works that would be completed during the extended period are specific to the new storage yard and include the installation of utilities (Hydro, telecommunications, water and storm), subgrade preparation, placement of granular base materials and paving. Works also include the installation of two reduced pressure backflow assemblies, meters, and associated piping at the northwest corner of the site and the southwest corner of Mountain Highway and Columbia Street.
