Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
All of the types of wastes create a significant impact on the immediate environment of the Ferguson Lake camp area. Mitigations measures are to use accredited incinerator with minimal fuel to burn wastes, dispose greywater and drill cuttings in a permitted sump adjacent to camp, Burn sewage from PAC toilets in incinerator. Fly out non-burnable garbage to be disposed in municipal dump with permission. Treat batteries, printer cartridges and aerosol cans as hazardous water to be removed from camp and disposed in an accredited site.
Waste Management
Waste Type Quantity Generated Treatement Method Disposal Method
Combustible wastes 1 m3 per day Unburnable materials flown out of camp to be disposed in municipal dump with permission Burned in the incinerator at camp
Greywater 2 m3 per day none Greywater disposed in permitted sump by camp
Sewage (human waste) 0.1 m3/day none human waste from PAC toilets is burned in incinerator
Hazardous waste 5kg/day none Vehicle batteries treated as hazardous water to be taken out of camp and disposed in accredited site
Non-Combustible wastes 30 tonnes none To be tested (dirt and water analyses) to assess if hazardous and then removed safely overland to Baker Lake to be barged south to be disposed at an accredited site.
