- John Templeton reported seeing coho fry in Tributary 3A last week. Les Leighton took some video:
- After many years of delay and denial, SFU is starting to clean up the old salt shed site after BC Ministry of Environment sent a letter in February, which says in part,
Section 6(4) of the Environmental Management Act must be complied with. It states, "Subject to subsection (5), a person must not introduce waste into the environment in such a manner or quantity as to cause pollution." After reviewing the data that has been collected in the vicinity of the site, it appears that pollution has been caused.SFU replies,
SFU has made the commitment to proceed with the appropriate remediation measures, independent of a decision to proceed with a new central heating plant on this location. However, the timing of the remediation may be affected by whether SFU is proceeding with the central energy plant. A request for a decision by the Board of Governors on the development of a new central heat plant on the site will be presented at the May Board meeting. Therefore it is anticipated that the work required by remediation will be coordinated with the construction of the new plant should it proceed.
- Cleared site ready for excavating the salt-contaminated soil
- See the Calendar for April activities.
