Route Hearing Prep 5

Image of pipeline constructionYou may have seen near-full-page ads in the paper lately from Kinder Morgan, inviting you to find out on their website if your community is affected by their pipeline construction. However prior to construction there is the little detail of approval of the route of the project by the National Energy Board. Between the overall project route approval process, the NEB facilitated Appropriate Dispute Resolution process that the City is engaged in with the company, and the hearing for the Chilliwack BC Hydro Route Realignment (which is a realignment of the pipeline, not BC Hydro), it can be hard to keep track of how residents are to have their interests heard in the regulatory processes.

To support residents' participation, WaterWealth is hosting a series of casual drop-in sessions to share information about the pipeline issues and processes.

Interested Chilliwack area residents are welcome to attend to share information, decide whether and how to participate, and work together to prepare for the hearings.

Three remaining sessions before the Sept 21 deadline to apply to participate in the realignment hearing are;

Monday Sept 11, 5:30-8:30 pm, Sardis Library, 5819 Tyson Rd, Chilliwack

Wednesday Sept 13, 5:30-8:30 pm, Yarrow Community School, 4595 Wilson Rd, Chilliwack

Monday Sept 18, 5:30-8:30 pm, Sardis Library, 5819 Tyson Rd, Chilliwack

Applications to participate in the Chilliwack BC Hydro Realignment hearing must be filed with the NEB by 3 pm Pacific Time, September 21.

Details of the overall route hearings have not been announced yet by the NEB for route segments in BC.

The next session is:

September 11, 2017 at 5:30pm - 8:30pm
Sardis Library
5819 Tyson Rd
Chilliwack, BC V2R 3R6
