Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
There will be some ground disturbance through access development and upgrading, though any disturbances will be short-term., limited to one season. All roads will be graded to ensure proper drainage and to minimize transport of sediments to any nearby sensitive receptors, if present. Sediment and erosion control measures will be implemented if construction activities occur near watercourses. All construction activities will be greater than 30 m from any watercourse to the extent possible. Fuel will not be stored on site to minimize potential contamination of the ground. Re-fuelling of equipment, if necessary, will occur greater than 30 m from any water sources and spill kits will be kept nearby.
