The company with plans to put an independent power project on Glacier/Howser creeks has submitted a fish and fish habitat report on one of the two creeks to the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO).
AXOR’s Purcell Green Power has submitted additional information required by the EAO for Howser Creek, in the wake of the EAO suspending review of the project in September of 2009.
The report will be posted on the EAO’s website if it is deemed to be adequate. If the report is not adequate, Purcell would have to revise their plan.
According to the EAO website, there is no limit to the number of times a company can revise the plan.
As well, there has been no confirmation of another public consultation period now that the review has been taken up again. There are 88 days left in the 180-day environmental assessment review period.
