Teal-Jones Group | Teal-Jones Maintenance Dredging
In February 2021, a project permit was issued to Teal-Jones Group to conduct maintenance dredging of up to 4,000 cubic metres of accumulated sediment and wood waste from their industrial water lot. The proposed project site is located located at 17897 Trigg Road, Surrey, British Columbia, on waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
The project was approved subject to 32 permit conditions Teal-Jones Group must meet to ensure the project does not result in significant adverse environmental effects.
About the project
Teal-Jones Group proposes to conduct maintenance dredging of up to 4,000 cubic metres of accumulated sediment and wood waste from their industrial water lot. The average target depth is -1.9 meters Local Low Water (LLW). Maximum depth will be -4 meters LLW at the eastern, deeper parts of the proposed footprint and will be 1 meter in the shallower parts of the dredge boundary. The proposed dredge footprint and depth remain unchanged from previous years. Dredging will be conducted using a clamshell bucket from a barge mounted derrick. Dredged sediment will be loaded on to an adjacent flat scow barge, positioned within the water lot. The applicant is seeking a multi-year permit to dredge periodically. Dredging is proposed during the June 16 – February 28 least risk window for fish and fish habitat. Once loading is complete, the dredged materials will be towed and disposed at sea. The works will take up to 3 days.
