Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to address:

  • Groundwater quality and quantity
  • Surface water quality and quantity
  • Soils and terrain
  • Fish and fish habitat
  • Vegetation
  • Wildlife and wildlife habitat
  • Air quality
  • Noise and vibration
  • Human health
