Log dump habitat restoration

Habitat restoration of an old log dump facility would involve the removal, by a clam shell dredge, of sediment containing anthropogenic materials, such as, logs, cables, rope and wood waste from an area of approximately 4,000 square metres. This is to restore the seabed to a more natural state, to promote an increase in habitat value and biodiversity. Dredged material would be disposed of at an approved disposal at sea site and a suitable upland location.  

Habitat restoration works at the log dump facility are proposed to supplement the habitat offsetting plan under PER 20-191 - Sterling Shipyard Remediation and Infill, which is required as part of a Fisheries and Oceans Canada Fisheries Act Authorization.  

Note: Fisheries and Oceans Canada has reviewed this project as well as the Sterling Shipyard Remediation and Infill as a single project (CIAR #84198).
