George's Lake Communication Transmission Line

Proponent: Newfoundland Power Inc.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description:
    • The proponent proposes to construct a 4.2 kilometre aerial communication (telephone) transmission line from Coleman's Cove to cottages located on the north east side of Georges Lake, in Western Newfoundland. The proposed route will include an aerial crossing of Pinchgut Brook, a scheduled salmon river. The rational for the project is to provide telephone service to the cabins in the area. The project is planned to consist of 10 to 15 metre high single pressure treated CCA wood poles with an average span of 70 metres between each pole and cable attached approximately 6 metres above the ground. The cleared width of right-of-way will be approximately 5.4 metres, or 2.7 metres either side of centerline. The project will include surveying, brush clearing and installation of poles and cable.
