The period for public submissions to the BC Environmental Assessment Office has now closed. Thank you to the many people who have taken the time to express concerns about this project, especially the aspect of compressor noise. You are encouraged to contact your MLA and local Councillors with your thoughts to keep the issue at the fore.

Fortis is proceeding with their submission to the BC Oil and Gas Commission to seek approval for construction. A requirement is that they notify residents within 800 meters of the work and advise them of the opportunity to comment to the BCOGC about the project within 21 days of receiving their letter (dated March 16, 2020 in my case). While a focus of the letter is the pipeline itself, local truck traffic and construction noise, the changes to the Compressor Station and approval of the compressor station upgrade installation is a critical component. Registering concerns is through a simple BC OGC form which can be downloaded from the Commission’s website https://www.bcogc.ca/node/5885/download The form is a word document and can be emailed in. These submission forms can be sent in any time before the Commission makes its decision.
