To support the submission of an Environmental Assessment Certificate application for a proposed metallurgical coal mine, Associated Environmental completed the terrestrial baseline assessments including the ecosystem, vegetation and wildlife studies, and Reclamation Plan for the study area.
The BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) retained Associated Environmental to assist in restoring riparian habitat and monitoring fish compensation habitat at three locations. The work was in accordance with the requirements of three Fisheries Act Authorizations that allowed for significant upgrades to the Adams River Bridge at Squilax, the Trans-Canada Highway at Salmon Arm, and Highway 97A at Armstrong. AE conducted yearly assessments of riparian vegetation and provided workable solutions to help MOTI meet its targets for the sites.
Associated led the delivery of a Long-Term Monitoring Plan for six run-of-river hydroelectric facilities located in the Harrison and Stave watersheds. As specified in the facilities’ Conditional Water Licence Authorizations and under the Fisheries Act, implementation of the Long-Term Monitoring Plan is required for the first 5 years of operation, followed by continued data analysis.
