Shoreline protection and retaining wall improvements project

The applicant, Mill & Timber Products Ltd., proposes to repair a timber retaining wall and install a rip rap rock berm to stabilize slopes at their timber mill operation at 12745 116 Avenue in Surrey, B.C. Approximately 600 cubic meters of shoreline rip rap would be installed at the northwestern edge of their lot. The slope would be excavated so that fabric liner and rip rap can be placed at an angle of 1.5:1 to protect the slope from eroding or collapsing. The timber retaining wall would be adjusted as necessary, and a new lock block wall will be placed at the top of the slope. All works would occur adjacent and within the southern bank of the Fraser River. Excavation and rock placement at the lower end of the slope would be below the high water mark. The project is expected to be completed over several weeks in summer or fall of 2020. Works will occur during the least risk timing window for fish which is June 16 to February 28. Works are proposed within standard daytime construction hours. Construction would be conducted from land using an excavator and backhoe.
