Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New

Operation Type: Seasonal
Project Description:
THIS IS AN AMENDMENT TO NPC FILE NO: 148190: REASON FOR AMENDMENT: REQUEST TO NWB TO INCREASE QUANTITY OF WATER USE PER DAY FROM 14 m3 TO 40 m3 CAM-E (Keith Bay) is located at approximate coordinates: 68o 17’ 16” N; 88o 07’ 10” W. It is about 75 km east of Kugaaruk, 280 km west of Hall Beach, Nunavut. 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 Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND). DIAND plans to clean up the site starting from 2016 and finishing about 2020. The initial Nunavut Planning Commission (NPC) Conformity Check was done for the entire CAM-E Remediation project. NPC determined that the project proposal submitted was outside the area of an applicable regional land use plan (ref: NPC File # 148190 CAM-E (Keith Bay) Remediation Project dated January 27, 2016). This modification is triggered by the proposed change to the daily water usage at the site. The approved water usage with the existing Water Licence is 14 m3/day. The project team feels that moisture conditioning may be required during site construction which may require more water usage. To this end, The CAM-E project team has requested Nunavut Water Board to increase water usage from 14 to 40 m3/day.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
This application is very similar to the original application. This new application is necessitated because the contractor feels that during the short period of constructing the Tier II facility, water use per day may be up to 40 m3/day instead of the 14 m3/day; hence NWB has been requested to increase daily water use to 40 m3/day. The consultant has adviced that the existing Environmental Screening Report is still valid with this proposed change as the chnage will not generate any additional wastes that will impact the environment. The predicted environmental impacts of this project and the proposed mitigations are contained in the attached Environmental Screening Report. Once the mitigations are applied, the residual effects of the project on local economy, traditional land use, human health an archaeological and heritage resources are predicted to be none or negligible in magnitude.
