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 on Brevoort Island called BAF-3, a Long Range Radar Site (LRR) for the North Warning System (NWS). BAF-3 is located near the southern end of Brevoort Island, off the east coast of Baffin Island, Nunavut. The site is 366 m above sea level. BAF-3 is 250 km North East of Iqaluit. BAF-3 is an unmanned site, but it is visited by staff from Iqaluit, the Logistic Support Site (LSS-Q), on scheduled quarterly preventive and corrective maintenance trips and on an as needed basis. From May to September there may be an average of 5 to 20 personnel on-site due to seasonal project activity and occasional Third Party visitors. The site’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. BAF-3-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 BAF-3 Nunavut Water Board water licence (3BC-BAF0919) without modification. The Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) file number for the BAF-3 water licence is 03DN120. This site's NIRB screening is attached as NIRB Screening (31-Oct-2003). The following documents are being submitted as the Water Licence Renewal Package for BAF-3: •Application for Water Licence Amendment 3BC-BAF0919 •Annex A1 - 081029 3BC-BAF---- NPC not required-IMLE •Annex A2 - 090731 3BC-BAF0409 Exempt from NIRB-IMLE •Annex A4 - Berm Water Sampling QAQC Plan •Annex A5 - 170925 3BC-BAF0919 2017 inspection report-ILAE •Annex A6 - NWB Licence Compliance Assessment •Remote Camp Supplementary Questionnaire 3BC-BAF0919 •Annex Q1 - 3BC-BAF0919 Executive Summary •Annex Q2 – Spill Contingency Plan •Annex Q3 – BAF-3 Site Description •Annex Q4 – BAF-3Site Plan •Annex Q5 – Jet A1 SDS
