Mint Brook (Gambo Pond) Transmission Line

Proponent: Newfoundland Power Inc.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description: The proponent proposes to construct a 0.4 kilometre extension to the aerial power and communication (telephone) transmission line located at Mint Brook on the north side of Gambo Pond, in Central Newfoundland. The proposed extension will include an aerial crossing of Mint Brook, a scheduled salmon river. The rational for the project is to provide power and telephone service to cabins located on the southwestern side of Mint Brook. Additional planned work includes a 2.4 kilometre upgrade to the existing transmission line between Gambo River and Mint Brook. 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 3 metres from the top of the poles. 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 cables.
