METRO VANCOUVER, Oct. 23 /CNW/ - On Friday, October 17th, Port Metro
Vancouver (PMV) suspended ocean disposal operations at Roberts Bank upon
learning that the contractor, Deltaport Constructors Ltd. (a joint venture
between Vancouver Pile Driving Ltd. and Graham Construction Ltd.) had exceeded
ocean disposal amounts applied for under the 2008 ocean disposal permit.
PMV immediately advised Environment Canada and will cooperate in any
investigation or required mitigation action.
Port Metro Vancouver learned of the discrepancy Thursday of last week
when the contractor advised of amounts recently disposed.
A cease and desist order is expected to be issued by Environment Canada.
