Toosey First Nation - Telus Telecommunications Tower - Riske Creek

The Project includes construction of a 75 m triangular guyed Telus telecommunications tower, and installation of associated equipment including an 8' x 10' equipment shelter, and a 40 kW generator set. The tower and associated equipment will be constructed on a 20 x 20 m gravel pad compound area. A 12 m by 11 m gravelled access road will be constructed between the compound and existing dirt road. A chainlink fence will be constructed around the tower, generator, and shelter to prevent unauthorized access. The electrical routing extending from the tower will include: a new overhead power line that will extend along the dirt road from Tlesc'ox'eten Road to the compound area, and a short length of underground power between the end of the new overhead power line and the new shelter. The Project footprint is occurring within a grassland/rangeland area with scattered trees.
