A follow-up program to verify the accuracy of the environmental assessment and/or determine the effectiveness of any measures taken to mitigate the adverse environmental effects is required for this project. The follow-up program will be comprised of Proponent obligations for monitoring and reporting as identified in their Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program, as well as monitoring and reporting requirements contained in applicable federal and provincial permits. For further information on the follow-up program, please contact the authorities who were responsible to conduct this environmental assessment.
