Hnausa Harbour, Manitoba - FFMC Barge Loading Ramp Construction - Winter 2021

Hnausa Harbour is located on the West side of Lake Winnipeg, approximately 120 km North of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The harbour is an active commercial fishing facility under the administration of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Small Craft Harbours Branch (SCH) with the Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation (FFMC) operating on site.

Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation is proposing to undertake the construction of a barge loading ramp at Hnausa Harbour. The scope of work includes the construction of a ramp using existing rock/material from the site and topped with imported granular fill. Some sediment will be removed from the lake bottom adjacent to the ramp to allow the barge access to the ramp.

To prevent the migration of disturbed sediment during the work, from the work areas into Lake Winnipeg, a vertical silt curtain will be erected to isolate the work area from the lake.


Latest update
