About the project
Peter Kiewit Sons UCL (PKS) proposes to conduct dredging of up to 40,000 cubic metres in the water lot fronting 1950 Brigantine Drive, Coquitlam, BC. Dredging is required to remove accumulated sediments from within the water lot and restore design grades of up to -6.1 metres Chart Datum and ensure safe navigation and operation of marine construction equipment (i.e., barges and support vessels).
The Project will consist of:
- Dredging up to 15,700 square metres of the western area of the water lot to a dredge depth of approximately -2.5 metres Chart Datum. The total dredge volume will be approximately 16,700 cubic metres.
- Dredging up to 15,100 square metres on the eastern area of the water lot to a dredge depth of approximately -4.0 metres Chart Datum. The total dredge volume will be approximately 22,900 cubic metres.
Dredging will be completed using a marine spud derrick- or barge-mounted clamshell dredge or excavator. Dredged materials will be loaded onto barges for transport and disposal at an approved disposal at sea site under a valid disposal at sea permit from Environment and Climate Change Canada.
