The EA process for this Project has been extremely open and transparent. Both BURNCO and the government agencies have gone to great lengths to ensure all stakeholders are involved and have opportunity to have their voices heard. In total there have been three public comment periods as well as eight open houses during the review. In each of the written comment periods, all submissions were addressed individually by BURNCO and reviewed to the satisfaction of regulators.
BURNCO has spent considerable effort understanding the complexities of the fresh water and marine resources on site with the support of government, independent peer reviewed scientific studies, Indigenous groups and local stakeholders to find solutions and put forward a strong application that addresses the needs fulsomely. Stakeholders can be assured that protection of the environment and a valuable resource like the salmon fishery is essential to everyone at BURNCO and the continued success of our business. Gravel is a non-renewable resource needed for all construction and as one deposit is exhausted we are working on developing the next one. This requires us to respect the land and be judged on the success of every project as a pre-requisite for the next.
BURNCO is proud to propose an environmentally sound sand and gravel project on its privately owned land situated on the west side of McNab Valley in Howe Sound.
