Fraser Surrey Docks | Agricultural Air Handling Upgrades Project
Permit amendment issued
In May 2021, amendment PER No. 15-058-2 was issued to Fraser Surrey Docks Limited Partnership (FSD). The amendment allows FSD to continue using the temporary dust suppression infrastructure for an additional six months, until October 6, 2021.
About the approved amendment
FSD requested an extension to the timeline for the decommissioning and removal of the interim dust suppression measures. This required an amendment to condition 9, which was amended in 2019 (PER No. 15-058-1) and read:
Components of the dust suppression measures installed pursuant to this Permit (as described in Section 2.1.3) shall cease to be used and shall be removed in their entirety within 48 months from the Date of Approval. A Project and Environmental Review is not required to affect the removal of this mobile equipment.
This condition was included because the dust suppression measures approved under the project permit were intended to be temporary in nature. A permanent solution has been incorporated into a joint venture agricultural facility called Fraser Grain Terminal (FGT) Grain Facility; a proposal which was undergoing a review at that time (PER No. 15-041). Upon completion and commencement of operation of the FGT facility, the temporary dust suppression infrastructure approved under project permit PER No.15-058 are expected to be decommissioned and removed.
Due to unexpected delays in the construction of the new FGT the applicant requested an extension to the timeline to continue using the temporary dust suppression infrastructure for an additional six months, until October 6, 2021.
