Ogden Point Dredging/blasting Project

Environmental Screening Report
GVHA (Greater Victoria Harbour Authority) is in the final stages of the cruise ship terminal expansion project that began in the fall of 2009 with the installation of the mooring dolphin. In this stage of the project, seabed rock and sediment are being removed in order to safely berth large vessels on the north side of Pier B.

When: January 14, 2011 – February 28, 2011
Work schedule: Monday - Saturday from 7am – 7pm, possibly Sundays with reduced hours
The drilling and blasting components of the work must be completed by February 15, 2011 when the herring run begins.
Our ocean environment concerns.

It was reported on the news today that nine ships in the 2010 Alaska season out of the 230+ had to skip the port due to the wave and wind action and the reduced depth of the pier. It will now be increased to allow larger ships to moor safely
