Environmental impact assessment, Trans-Canada Highway, Fredericton to Salisbury : final environmental impact assessment report by Washburn & Gillis Associates( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Brunswick Dept. of Transportation has proposed to construct a new section of the Trans-Canada Highway between Fredericton and Salisbury in order to accommodate anticipated increases in traffic volumes and to replace the increasingly inadequate and accident-prone segment of the existing highway. This report presents the environmental assessment of the proposed highway, in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulation of the province's Clean Environment Act. The report first describes the proposed project and reviews alternatives (including the do-nothing alternative), and provides descriptions of the existing environment along the highway route, including topography, geology, terrestrial and aquatic environment components, air quality, and socio-economic setting. It then analyses potential impacts of the highway, along with proposed mitigation to offset those impacts, on groundwater, terrestrial resources, wetlands, aquatic resources, air quality, land use, the local and provincial economy, noise, and health and safety. Potential impacts on Canadian Forces Base Gagetown are also noted

Evaluation of soil washing and bioslurry reactor treatment for sites contaminated with PCBs found in association with heavy metals (Saint John, NB) by Washburn & Gillis Associates( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Study to evaluate the feasibility of soil washing and bioslurry reactor treatability in remediating soils at the Department of Transport site in Saint John to meet site soil cleanup standards. Elements of interest in the soils include cadmium, copper, lead, zinc, and the polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The study reviewed the methods to remove the metals and PCBs. The investigation consisted of a series of screening tests and a series of final tests. The study also involved assessment of bioslurry reactor treatments. The treatability study evaluated the bioslurry reactor technology under five different operational conditions to identify the optimum environment for the biological degradation of PCBs. This report presents the findings from the treatability studies
Geological assessment and aquifer testing, Sussex, New Brunswick : final report by Washburn & Gillis Associates( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results of a project being conducted at Sussex, New Brunswick that consisted of geological assessment, exploration drilling, and aquifer testing to determine the hydrogeological and groundwater potential for earth energy applications on the Sussex Health Centre site. The work done was a preliminary exploratory assessment of the local geology, aquifer hydraulics, and the availability and quality of groundwater found in the bedrock geological units in the northeast part of Sussex near the industrial park. Work included a review of available geological data, maps, and reports in the area, the interpretation of the data to locate two bedrock test wells, and conducting two step drawdown tests followed by a 48-hour constant rate pumping test. Work was carried out from August to November 1992

Environmental impact assessment, Trans-Canada Highway, Fredericton to Salisbury : component study report, impacts of Saint John River crossing from a hydrotechnical perspective by Cumming Cockburn Limited( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proposed upgrade of the Fredericton-Salisbury Trans-Canada Highway includes a portion crossing the Saint John River and its flood plain from Gagetown to Upper Gagetown. This report describes a study conducted to determine if the proposed bridges, structures, and connecting highways in that portion will cause significant changes to the characteristics of flooding and to the distribution of flow in the river from Upper Maugerville to the Gagetown ferry crossing. The study updated previous flood frequency analyses using new data and employed a two-dimensional hydrodynamic model to assess the potential impacts of the proposed highway alignment. Field surveys to provide suitable model input and calibration included collection of information on river system physical characteristics and flood conditions. Potential hydrotechnical impacts were evaluated for a range of flood events covering a range of flood peaks and runoff volume

Assessment of rare and endangered vascular plant species along the proposed Fundy Trail (St. Martins to Alma) by Washburn & Gillis Associates( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fundy Trail Development Authority Inc. has proposed the development of a parkway between St. Martins and Alma, N.B. In preparation for registration of the project under the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulation of the Clean Environment Act, environmental data was collected for the area of the proposed parkway alignment. During the data collection exercise, it was noticed that there was a lack of information about the rare flora along that section of the Trail between St. Martins and the Little Salmon River. This report presents the methodology and results of a study locating the plant species and sensitive habitat possibly located along the proposed alignment and the assessment of the presence of these species in the sensitive habitat areas
