Notice of Determination

Village of Belcarra, BC, –October 5, 2021– The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has determined that the proposed New Pile Installation for Recreational Dock located at 4505 Belcarra Bay Rd., Belcarra BC is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

This determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • Impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples
  • Indigenous knowledge
  • Community knowledge
  • Comments received from the public
  • Technically and economically feasible mitigation measures

Mitigation measures taken into account for this determination are:

  • A spill prevention, containment and clean-up plan will be developed for the project, be available in the immediate working area, and project personnel will be trained on spill prevention, containment, and clean-up
  • The physical activities will be conducted in a manner that avoids increasing sedimentation of foreshore and nearshore areas and induced turbidity of local waters
  • The works will not deposit a deleterious substance in water inhabited by fish, or affect fish or fish habitat in a manner contrary to the Fisheries Act
  • All construction equipment will be environmentally clean and properly maintained to prevent spills, invasive species, and noxious weeds
  • A chance find procedure will be implemented during the project, be available in the immediate working area, and project personnel will be trained on response procedures in the event that archaeological resources are encountered
  • Construction debris and waste materials will be collected in the immediate working area and disposed of at an appropriately licensed facility

Therefore, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
