Neptune Berth 2 Dredge - Mitigative Depth Control

The proposed project 

Neptune Bulk Terminals Canada Ltd. is proposing to carry out riprap removal and dredging within the water lot fronting their terminal located at 1001 Low Level Road, North Vancouver, BC. The Project is required to re-establish required depths within Berth 2 from -13.2 Chart Datum to -14.6 Chart Datum.  

The Project will consist of removal of riprap scour protection at the existing pony sheetwall and dredging of sediment, as required. Approximately 260 cubic metres of material (riprap and sediment) will be removed using a barge mounted crane or excavator on a marine derrick with a clamshell bucket. Works will be carried out within an approximate 23 square metre footprint. Overdredging may be required, which would extend the dredge footprint up to 44 square metres and include removal of an additional 240 cubic metres of material. Removed material will be loaded onto a barge for disposal at an upland facility. Any removed sediment will be analytically tested prior to disposal. The ponywall may require cutting by divers to -15.0 m Chart Datum to suit ground after dredging.  

Project works are expected to take three to five days to complete and will be carried out during the fisheries least risk window for Burrard Inlet.
