OTTAWA, June 15, 2018 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed City of Winnipeg Insect Control Branch and Heliport Relocation Project, located in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
In April, the Agency invited the public and Indigenous groups to comment on the project and its potential effects on the environment, as described in the summary of the project description. Following this comment period, the City of Winnipeg, the proponent, informed the Agency that the project site would be moved approximately 680 metres east of the location listed in the project description.
The Agency is now seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups on the project's environmental effects at the revised location, as described in the proponent's addendum to the project description.
All comments received will be considered public. Written comments in either official language must be submitted by June 25, 2018 to:
City of Winnipeg Insect Control Branch and Heliport Relocation Project
Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
9700 Jasper Avenue, Suite 1145
Edmonton, Alberta T5J 4C3
Email: [email protected]
As a next step, the Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether an environmental assessment is required. If one is required, the public will have three more opportunities to comment on the environmental assessment of the project.
