Plans in motion for Coast Guard Base Float replacement project in Prince Rupert

It's a green light for new floats
for the Seal Cove Coast Guard base
The Canadian Coast Guard is making progress on its plan towards replacing the aging concrete floats located at the Seal Cove Base,  with the proposed project looking to replace five of the existing floats that moor lifeboats and SAR vessels stationed in Prince Rupert.

The scope of the project which has been listed at Impact Assessment Agency of Canada notes that when completed the floats will provide for an increase of 81 square metres.

The comment period for review of potential adverse effects recently came to a close, with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada having reviewed the commentary and now having determined that the project is not likely to cause any impact.

The details from those findings can be reviewed here.

There is no timeline listed as to when the work is anticipated to be completed, though the project notes indicate July 2020 to February 2021 as window for the progress of the float replacement.

You can review the full scope of the work ahead here.

More items of interest from the Federal government can be explored here, while the work of Northwest emergency responders can be reviewed here.
