The Proposed Project

Construction of a Solid Waste Transfer Station proposed to be located in the W 28-33-12-W2M.  The Transfer Station will be entirely located within the Reserve boundary of Fishing Lake IR 89. The new site is adjacent to the exitsting landfill site, and was selected by the First Nation, as residents are familiar with the existing landfill site. New access roadways and 125m x 100m  raised gravel pad will be constructed to serve the area. Concrete retaining walls for ramp disposal area and separation of non-household waste materials. Construction layout staking, topsoil stripping, geotextile placement, imported gravel fill material for construction of the gravel pad, construction of concrete retaining walls, installation of perimeter chain link fencing, 30 cubic yard waste bin, used oil container and used battery container will remain on-site.
