The Proposed Project

Chemtrade proposes to conduct maintenance dredging adjacent to its Berth 1 near 100 Amherst Avenue in North Vancouver, BC. The purpose of the project is to dredge and remove accumulated sediment to achieve appropriate vessel clearance at the berth. The scope of works includes dredging a footprint of approximatively 240 square meters to a target dredge depth of -11.0 metres chart datum. The total dredge volume will be 516 cubic metres. Dredging will be completed with a clamshell bucket and will take a few days. The applicant plans to dispose the sediment upland. The area was last dredged in February 2015.
