Happy Valley-Goose Bay Ex-Situ Soil Bioremediation Facility

Proponent: Nordlys Environmental Limited Partnership

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to construct and operate a temporary ex-situ soil bioremediation facility on the South Branch Road, off Highway 520, 10 kilometres from the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay and within the Municipal Planning Area of the town. The facility is proposed in order to treat hydrocarbon impacted soils that have been excavated from the Survival Tank Farm (STF) site at Canadian Forces Base 5 Wing Goose Bay. Soils from the STF site are currently undergoing treatment at an approved treatment area on Base property but some soils may require additional biodegradation to remediate residual contamination. Construction activities include land clearing, establishing a perimeter access route, road grading and installation of a lined soil treatment pad. Construction of the project is proposed to begin in April 2018 with operations scheduled from October 2018 to December 2020.
