Halo Sawmill Maintenance Dredging

The Proposed Project 

Fraser River Pile & Dredge (GP) Inc., on behalf of Halo Sawmill Manufacturing Limited Partnership, proposes to conduct maintenance dredging of up to 4,000 cubic metres of material adjacent to 17700 Fraser Dyke Road, Pitt Meadows, BC. The applicant is seeking a multi-year permit to dredge periodically, during the least risk fish window for the Fraser River. Previous maintenance dredging within the same footprint and to the same depth was most recently conducted in February 2020.  

The Project consists of dredging to an approximate grade of -4 metres local low water using a barge-mounted crane and clamshell bucket. The dredge footprint will be approximately 7,770 square metres. Dredged materials will be loaded onto a barge for transport and disposal at an approved disposal at sea site. Dredging is anticipated to take two to four days to complete per event. Due to potential restrictions from the nearby Pitt Meadows Airport, dredging may be conducted overnight and on weekends and holidays.
