Andrews Pond (Clarenville) Water Control Structure

Proponent: Town of Clarenville

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description:
    • The proponent proposes to construct a water control structure at Andrews Pond to allow for increased water storage. Andrews Pond is located approximately 13km upstream of the Town?s water supply intake on Shoal Harbour River. The end result will be that the Town of Clarenville will be able to increase the flow of water into its water supply/treatment system during the low flow months of June, July and August. The water control structure will consist of a concrete structure approximately 35m long, 2m high and 2m wide. Incorporated in the structure will be two water control gates for release of water during times of low flow, a fish ladder to ensure that fish migration patterns are not disrupted, and an overflow spillway. An earth fill dam will also extend southward along the shoreline for approximately 60 m. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-July and conclude by mid-September 2003.
  • February 17, 2003 - The undertaking was registered.
  • April 11, 2003 - The Minister announced that the undertaking was released from environmental assessment.
