The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) is determining whether an environmental assessment is required for the Delta Grinding Facility Project.
The CEAA is inviting public comments until April 7 on the project, its potential for causing adverse environmental effects and on the Government of British Columbia’s request to substitute the environmental assessment process.
Lehigh Hanson Materials Limited is proposing to construct, operate and decommission a grinding facility with a marine terminal adjacent to its existing cement plant facility located on Tilbury Island in Delta, B.C.
As proposed, the the facility would produce up to 650,000 tonnes of supplementary cementitious material per year when fully operational, and would have an operational life of at least 40 years.
The CEAA is also seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups on this request; and all comments received will be considered public.
Written comments in either official language must be submitted by April 7 to:
