Notice determination

December 29, 2019 – Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Magnetawan First Nation Underground Storage Tank Removal - Band Office is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects

The determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • Removal of the tanks will ensure limited future risk of fuel related spills in the community, resulting in a positive impact on community members
  • The removal of fuel tanks is a procedure with standard mitigation measures to ensure minimal impact to the environment

Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to address:

  • Fuel tank Removal – a certified TSSA installer will be utilized to remove the fuel tanks
  • Solid Waste – all waste from the project will be segregated into appropriate streams and disposed of at an approved facility
  • Clean Fill – all clean fill will be tested prior to backfilling to ensure that no contaminated fill is placed back into the hole

Indigenous Services Canada is satisfied that that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Therefore, Indigenous Services Canada 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.
