IMPORTANT WIND FARM NOTICES

 UP-DATED ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

Based on a dialogue with Canada Wildlife Service and comments from our 3rd party experts, AECOM has added new mitigation to the Final EA Report on the windfarm proposed for Reserve No. 2.  The addendum mitigation is intended to deal with species at risk (“SAR’s”).  Council will take the additional SAR’s mitigation into account when considering whether to accept the Final EA Report and whether to issue an Environmental Permit for the Windfarm Project.

A copy of the SAR’s Addendum to the Final EA Report has been posted here: A_Vol A_EA_Addendum 1_Wind_60341251_Mitigation-2016-02-23
