The Environmental Protection Plans provide detailed, site-specific environmental protection measures to be implemented by the contractors and construction staff to minimize environmental effects from construction of the generating station and south access road. They are designed for use as reference documents providing the best management practices to meet or exceed regulatory requirements.
Environmental Protection Plans are organized by construction activity, highlighting measures to reduce the impact of a specific work activity (e.g., tree clearing or material placement in water). Contractors’ compliance with the Environmental Protection Plans is a contractual obligation. Under Manitoba Hydro’s construction site management, a Site Environmental Lead will be responsible for monitoring compliance and determining when corrective actions are required.
