Man of War Range Easement Clearing and Minor Earthworks

Canadian Coast Guard is planning to level uneven ground to allow for vegetation clearing within the Man of War Range clearing and access easements. The current state of the Man of War Range easement is partially impassible due to uneven topography, and cannot be cleared safely and efficiently for accurate use of the navigational aid. Due to the lack of visibility, the aid of navigation is no longer functional, thus excess site vegetation must be cleared.

CCG plans to use heavy machinery such as an excavator to create an ATV trail approximately 500m long, 2-3m wide to allow ATV passage for clearing purposes and personnel extraction in case of emergency. All merchantable timber (minimum 100mm diameter at butt and 2.5m in length) is to be cut, limbed and stacked neatly at edge of easement in 2.5 meter lengths. All remaining trees less than 100mm at butt,
brush, limbs, etc. is to be chipped and dispersed evenly within the easement. All remaining stumps of trees are to be no more than 150mm above grade.

Siltation and soil disturbance mitigation measures will be used as necessary.

This infrastructure is located on Boularderie Island, Cape Breton, NS and is required for the Aids To Navigation Program to mark navigational significance for the Mariner.
