The Narrows Inlet hydro project, located 50 kilometres south of Sechelt, B.C., has been granted a conditional Environmental Assessment Certificate by the Province of British Columbia.

The Environmental Assessment Certificate has 26 conditions, including conducting a study to determine the levels of methyl mercury in sediment/soils at Ramona Lake and potential effects on the release of methyl mercury into Ramona Lake.

Other conditions include developing and implementing a water quality and lake level monitoring program at Ramona Lake, developing and implementing a fish habitat compensation plan for Chickwat Creek, and maintaining the in-stream flow rates and diversion rates specified in the certificate during operations. A record of the factors that the ministers considered in making their decision can be found in the Reasons for Ministers’ Decision.
