Clyde River Quarries (149173)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Rita Sewornu
Company: Government of Nunavut - CGS
Schedule:
Start Date: 2019-05-29
End Date: 2019-05-29
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
This application is to renew a Quarry Administration Agreement (QAA) between the Government of Nunavut and the Hamlet of Clyde River. The renewal of the QAA is to enable the continuation of the extracting aggregate resources to meet the construction demands of the community. The four (4) quarries being applied for were part of NIRB screening assessment ( NIRB File # 08QN055) done in 2008. The sites contain gravel, sand, silt, and riprap suitable for construction purposes and road maintenance, making these sites very beneficial for the growth of the community. These quarry sites will remain active until all the aggregate is depleted. The Municipality will use the proceeds from Quarry permit fees to remediate the area to a point in which the area’s vegetation can grow back. The sites contain gravel, sand, silt, and riprap suitable for construction purposes and road maintenance, making these sites very beneficial for the growth of the community These quarry sites will remain active until all the aggregate is depleted. The Municipality will use the proceeds from Quarry permit fees to remediate the area to a point in which the area’s vegetation can grow back. These sites are in reasonable proximity to Clyde River, which results in easier access for the residents of the community to retrieve gravel. Close proximity to the community also minimizes costs to the contractors and the Hamlet due to the fact that equipment has quicker access to the proposed sites. The Government did explore other quarry sites, but felt these were the best option due to the reasonable proximity to the community, its aggregate reserves, and the quality of the aggregates.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
These site will be used to extract aggregate (Sand, Gravel, riprap and silt) to be used for construction projects in the community of Clyde River. Stockpiling of aggregate may occur in the event that a project requires aggregate but will not be permanent. A road already exists to the four sites so construction of a road is not required. Minor slumping may occur to the landscape due to the extraction of aggregate but will be levelled off once the quarry is depleted. Once the sites are depleted of essential aggregate, the quarry will be levelled off to avoid any steep ditches using sand, silt and any other undesirable aggregate. No water will be used in this project and no waste will be dumped into any water source. The runoff from this site will be all natural material (dust,sand etc.) in which runoff of this material already occurs in nature. No plans for snow accumulation exist due to the fact that any changes in snow drifting in this area from extraction of aggregate will be minimal (if any) No fuel will be stored at this location so no official plan exists. In the unlikely event that a transportation vehicle’s (dump truck/loader) fuel tank is punctured, the Municipality will call the NU 24-hour spill report line at (867) 920-8130 and immediately extract and remove the aggregate at the point of the spill. The contaminated soil will be relocated to the community land farm.

 Hi Goump, I did the update before resubmitting but it looks like it didn't save...this is what I wrote: This application is to renew a Quarry Administration Agreement (QAA) between the Government of Nunavut and the Hamlet of Clyde River. The renewal of the QAA is to enable the continuation of the extracting aggregate resources to meet the construction demands of the community. The four (4) quarries being applied for were part of NIRB screening assessment ( NIRB File # 08QN055) done in 2008. Let me know if it has finally changed. Rita
