Project Description:
The North Warning System (NWS) in Canada is a chain of unmanned radar sites that provides aerospace surveillance, established to detect and allow for an early response to potential threats entering North American air space. It is part of Canada’s North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) agreement with the United States, and an essential capability in our efforts to maintain Canada's sovereignty. FOX-3 is one of 11 Long Range Radars (LRRs) in the NWS. The NWS LRRs are located across Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and down the Labrador coast. The facilities are remotely monitored and controlled from North Bay on a 24/7 basis. The information they receive is automatically sent to the Canadian Air Defence Sector located at 22 Wing, CFB North Bay over a long-haul satellite communications network. Raytheon Canada Limited is contracted by the Department of National Defence to operate and maintain FOX-3. FOX-3 is situated in Nunavut on Baffin Island north of Dewar Lakes. It is located on a hill top, about 518 m above sea level, in an area of general glacial scouring and eskers. The airstrip in the valley is approximately 152 m above sea level. The closest source of support is FOX-M, Sanirajak (Hall Beach) to the west. Flight time from FOX-M to FOX-3 is 3 hours (including a half hour refueling stop) by helicopter under normal conditions. Staffing levels at FOX-3 are planned to increase beginning April 1st 2022 and to gradually increase to year-round attendance of at least nine staff members as of October 1st 2023. Present to April 1, 2022: During this time FOX-3 is not planned to be attended year-round. It will be visited by staff from FOX-M on quarterly maintenance trips, and on an as needed basis. During the months of May to September the site may have an average of 5 to 20 personnel on-site due to seasonal project activity and occasional Third Party visitors. April 1 2022 to September 30 2023: During this time FOX-3 is planned to be attended by at least 9 staff for the summer months (182 days of the year). During the winter (October 1 to March 31) it will be visited by staff from FOX-M on quarterly maintenance trips. 1 Oct 2023 onward: As of 1 Oct 2023 FOX-3 is planned to be attended full time (365 days of the year) by at least 9 staff. This application is for the amendment of the FOX-3 Nunavut Water Board water licence (8BC-FOD1828) with the following proposed changes: -Annual water use limit increase to 3000 cu m; and, -Increased staffing levels. The Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) file number for the FOX-3 water licence is 03DN118.
