Notice of Determination 

Delta, B.C. – January 19, 2023 – The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has determined that the proposed amendment to conduct project activities outside regular working hours for the Annacis Wastewater Treatment Plant Outfall Habitat Offsetting project located at adjacent to the 1400 block of Clivedon Avenue, Delta, B.C. 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:  

  • 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 
  • 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 
  • All works will be carried out in accordance with the construction environmental management plan. 
  • All works will be carried out in accordance with the archaeological chance find procedure 
  • A qualified environmental professional will be retained to monitor works and activities with the potential to negatively affect fish or fish habitat. 
  • Soils and other materials brought to the site will be clean and free of environmental contamination, invasive species, and noxious weeds. 
  • Any invasive plants will be managed in a manner that prevents their spread. 
  • All construction debris and waste materials will be collected in the immediate working area and disposed of at an appropriately licensed facility 
  • All construction equipment will be environmentally clean and properly maintained to prevent spills, invasive species, and noxious weeds 
  • No refueling or maintenance activities will be conducted within 30 metres of a waterbody or in areas where run-off may potentially reach a waterbody. 

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is satisfied that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. 

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.
