The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) has released draft environmental guidelines for the Keeyask Generation Project. The guidelines were drafted following a public review of the CEAA Keeyask Background Document. Manitoba Wildlands provide comments to CEAA on the Keeyask Background Document January 31, 2012.
Comments will be accepted on the draft CEAA Keeyask EIS Guidelines until March 28, 2012.
Manitoba Wildlands also provided comments on the Manitoba Hydro Keeyask Scoping document February 3, 2012.
It is expected the proposed $5.6 billion 695-megawatt Keeyask generation project on the Nelson River at Gull Rapids will be subject to joint federal and provincial environmental review process. As of yet, it is unclear how the joint review process will work.
