Marine Terminal Project on North Shore of Saguenay
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Marine Terminal Project on the North Shore of the Saguenay, located in Quebec.
The Agency invites the public to comment on the potential environmental effects of the project and the proposed measures to prevent or mitigate those effects as described in a summary of the proponent's Environmental Impact Statement.
This is the third of four opportunities for the public to comment on this project. All comments received will be considered public.
The Saguenay Port Authority is proposing the construction and operation of a new multi-user marine terminal to service the north shore of the Saguenay River at the municipality of Ste-Rose-du-Nord, located approximately 45 kilometres from the city of Saguenay. The plan involves building a wharf, a ship loader, silos, concentrate handling facilities and related buildings. An access road to the wharf 1 to 1.5 kilometre in length will have to be built. The berthing capacity of the wharf would be designed to accommodate bulk cargo vessels with a minimum of 50,000 deadweight tonnage.
