Hydro-Québec confirms that Romaine project is situated entirely within territory of Québec



    MONTREAL, Feb. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Hydro-Québec confirms that the Romaine
hydropower project will have no impact on the territory of Labrador since its
area of influence is situated entirely within Québec. Moreover, the
hydrological regime of the river above Romaine-4 will be identical to present
conditions in all respects.
    Hydro-Québec has filed a detailed environmental impact statement
regarding this project. The EIS meets the requirements set forth in the
directive issued by the ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement
et des Parcs as well as in the directive of the Canadian Environmental
Assessment Agency, which was the subject of a broad public consultation. The
EIS shows that the project will have no impact on the territory of Labrador,
even based on the 1927 Privy Council border, which is not considered final by
the Québec government.
    During public hearings held last fall, Hydro-Québec provided the
federal/provincial environmental review panel with all the required
information on this issue, available here:
