Project Description:
The environmental remediation project of the CAM-E (Keith Bay) former DEW Line Station was awarded to Kudlik Construction Ltd. in May 2016. In September 2016, heavy equipment, camp facilities, material and all consumables were delivered by sealift to Kugaaruk. All equipment, material and consumables required to achieve the remediation project will be transported by CAT train during the winter 2017 from Kugaaruk to CAM-E. The permit application for site works and camp operations at CAM-E are done by AANDC. The permitting for the overland mobilization falls under the responsibility of Kudlik Construction. CAM-E was constructed in 1957 as an Intermediate Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line site. The station was taken out of service in 1963 and in 1965, responsibility for the site was assumed by the Department of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). CAM-E is located at approximate Latitude: 68 17’ 16” N; and Longitude: 88 7’ 10” W. The nearest community to the site is Kugaaruk; CAM-E (Keith Bay) is about 75 km east of Kugaaruk, and 280 km west of Hall Beach, Nunavut. All materials and equipment will be transported from Kugaaruk to CAM-E on sleighs pulled by tractors. A total of 11 steel sleighs were fabricated for this purpose. Four (4) tractors CAT Challenger 855-D equipped with 36’’ wide rubber tracks will be used to pull the sleighs. One tractor is equipped with a 4 metres wide adjustable blade and a 25 metric tons winch. A snow groomer attachment was fabricated in order to maintain the route in good conditions. One Hagglund off road vehicles will be used for the trail development and as for emergency vehicles. All vehicles to be used on the trail are equipped with a GPS, a FM radio and a satellite phone. The trail will be marked at every 100 meters with poles equipped with reflectors. Poles will be placed during the trail opening and removed at the end of the mobilization. The mobilization from Kugaaruk to CAM-E will be done during the winter 2017. The site remediation will be completed during the summers 2017 and 2018. The demobilization from CAM-E to Kugaaruk will be done during the winter 2019.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
The only potential adverse effect that could involve the overland mobilization is the tracks left on the tundra. It will be mitigated by a proper route selection and the use of low ground pressure equipment. The areas where the snow cover is inappropriate will be avoided. The trail maintenance will prevent routing in the snow and will offer a better protection for the tundra. The transportation will take place in the winter, so there should have no effect on birds or most wildlife. The presence of wildlife will be monitored and activities adjusted to avoid unnecessary disturbance. No significant adverse residual effects are expected to occur.
