Field Studies Continue at Roberts Bank

Roberts Bank Terminal 2 project rendering

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA) is continuing field studies in August 2018 as part of ongoing environmental and technical work for the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project.

The Roberts Bank Project is a proposed new three‐berth container terminal that would provide 2.4 million TEUs of additional container capacity annually.

The project is undergoing a federal environmental assessment by an independent review panel, under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012, and requires other permits and authorizations before it can proceed.

The Port of Vancouver has provided an overview of field studies that will be taking place in August 2018:

  • Coastal Geomorphology;
  • Abiotic Parameters Study.

According to the Port, the purpose of these studies is to determine the physical conditions (e.g., temperature and salinity) influencing biofilm presence and distribution at Roberts Bank. The Roberts Bank study area is located in the upper and mid intertidal zones north of the Roberts Bank causeway.

The Port also added that during the field studies water quality measurements (conductivity, temperature and depth) will be recorded in the mid and upper intertidal zones of Roberts Bank.
