South Causeway Eelgrass Project - Extension to the Expiry Date and Project Name Change

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority proposes to raise the elevation of two subtidal depressions and create eelgrass beds on Roberts Bank, south of the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, Delta, BC. The project will convert two depressions into more productive fish habitat by creating two beds of suitable elevation and substrate for the establishment and persistence of eelgrass. A total estimated area of up to 42,600 square meters of eelgrass beds will be created. The project includes constructing riprap perimeter berms at two sites, installing four navigation markers, placing fill material within the constructed berms, and transplanting donor stock eelgrass. 

The project is proposed to be conducted until December 31, 2028. This would require an extension to the approved project permit (PER No. 15-167), which has an expiry date of December 31, 2021. The project name is also proposed to be changed to be the South Causeway Eelgrass Project.
