VICTORIA, B.C. — The Environmental Assessment Office has sent out the requirements it needs from Pembina Pipe Line Ltd.’s application get a stamp of approval and continue with their proposed expansion of the existing pipeline terminal in Taylor.
Still in the early stages of the process through the EAO, the office is asking Pembina to include many different details in their applications, including the purpose of the project, the location with latitude and longitude — including the location relative to Aboriginal Groups — the duration of the project, the relevant history of the project, impact on wildlife and planned land use thus far among many others factors.
The EAO also asks for any benefits the proposed Project may have to the five pillars of assessment, which are environmental, economic, social, health, and heritage.
The proposal still has many steps ahead of it before the pipeline expansion would come to life, however, and ultimately has to be approved by Environment Minister Mary Polak, and the minister overlooking the most relevant sector to the project.
