Project Description:
The North Warning System in Canada is a chain of unmanned radar sites that provides aerospace surveillance, established to detect and allow for an early response to potential threats entering North American air space. It is part of Canada’s North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) agreement with the United States, and an essential capability in our efforts to maintain Canada's sovereignty. Raytheon Canada Limited has the contract with the Department of National Defence to operate and maintain the North Warning System radar site at Hall Beach called FOX-M. FOX-M is located in Nunavut on the Melville Peninsula. The main portion of the site is set atop a knoll, about 5 m above sea level, consisting of material similar to that of the surrounding territory, which appears to be an emerging gravel studded sea bottom. FOX-M has been manned since the 1950’s. It consists of a Long Range Radar (LRR) site and a Logistics Support Site (LSS). FOX-M’s facilities include site buildings with their integral mechanical and electrical systems, power generation system, fuel tanks, radar, antennas, satellite ground terminals, weather equipment, and roads. FOX -M is staffed with an annual average site population of 18 to 22 people per day. Site numbers increase during the summer due to seasonal construction and occasional large groups of Third Party visitors. FOX -M is one of 11 LRRs of the North Warning System; the LRRs are located across the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and down the Labrador coast. The facilities are remotely monitored and controlled from North Bay on a 24/7 basis. The information they receive is automatically sent to the Canadian Air Defence Sector located at 22 Wing, CFB North Bay over a long-haul satellite communications network. This application is for the renewal of the FOX-M Nunavut Water Board water licence (3BC-FOH0919) with the following proposed changes: -field testing of berm water (see Annex A4 for details); and -the potential to landfarm hydrocarbon impacted soils on-site (see Annex A3 for details). The Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) file number for the FOX-M water licence is 03DN013. This site's NIRB screening is attached as Annex A2. The following documents are being submitted as the Water Licence Renewal Package for FOX-M: - Application for Water Licence Amendment 3BC-FOH0919 •Annex A1 - 090519 3BC-FOH0409 NPC Determination-ILAE •Annex A2 - 031031NWB5FOH NIRB Screening-ILAE •Annex A3 - FOX-M Landfarm Plan •Annex A4 - Berm Water Sampling QAQC Plan •Annex A5 - 170925 3BC-FOH0919 AUGUST 2017 INSPECTION REPORT-ILAE •Annex A6 - NWB Licence Compliance Assessment -Remote Camp Supplementary Questionnaire 3BC-FOH0919 •Annex Q1 - 3BC-FOH0919 Executive Summary •Annex Q2 – Spill Contingency Plan (PLN-EHS-2)(Rev.5) •Annex Q3 – FOX-M Site Description •Annex Q4 – FOX-M Site Plan •Annex Q5 – Jet A1 SDS
