For Approval Transport Canada Comments on the Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir Project - draft EA report and potential federal EA conditions

Reference Number

Good Day,


On behalf of Jackie Barker, please find attached Transport Canada’s comments on the draft EA report.  Transport Canada appreciates the opportunity to review and provide comment on the draft EA report and draft potential conditions for the Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir Project.


Please find our proposed edits and comments (in track changes) of the draft EA report within the attachment.  Specifically, we have noted on Pages iv, 55, and 64 that the Canadian Navigable Waters Act should be referenced, rather than the repealed Navigation Protection Act.  Additionally, we have noted two comments/suggestions on Page 133 for your consideration.


We also reviewed the new version of the draft potential conditions and note that our previous comments were considered and therefore we have no further comments to provide for that document.
