These site will be used to extract aggregate (Sand, Gravel, riprap and silt) to be used for construction projects in the community of Pangnirtung. Stockpiling of aggregate may occur in the event that a project requires aggregate but will not be permanent. A road already exists to the site 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.
