Conversion of the heating system at the arena of Wemotaci

Dismantling of  petroleum installations at the arena of Wemotaci (2 x 2000L above-ground tanks and associated piping) will be carried out by a company specializing in petroleum installations. Waste will be sent to an autorized off-community site and a report will be provided for waste storage by the dismantling company. An environmental consultant will also be present during the work to take samples and assess the quality of surface soils around the reservoir to a depth of 30-40 cm. If surface soils are contaminated, they will be excavated until there is no sign of contamination and disposed in an authorized site.

Latest update

January 28, 2024 – The public comment period on the project is closed. Indigenous Services Canada is considering comments received to help inform its determination on whether the carrying out of the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
