Berm Installation - Connaught Range and Primary Training Centre

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project. The project involves the installation of an earthen berm between the Charlie and Bravo ranges at the Connaught Range and Primary Training Centre (CRPTC) in the west of Ottawa, Ontario. The project is designed to a military specification and is required to ensure the safety of the users of the site. The berm will be constructed mainly using materials from a local source with added topsoil to allow seeding. The project will be subject to a soil management plan. There will be no major soil excavation. The project will involve, as applicable, protection of Species at Risk on site, transporting, stockpiling and reuse of soils and local material with heavy equipment and re-seeding of the project area once the berm has been installed.

Latest update

March 23, 2024 – The public comment period on the project is closed. The Department of National Defence is considering comments received to help inform its determination on whether the carrying out of the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
