Responsible or Regulated Authorities

Parks Canada Agency

Reasons for a Federal Assessment

On August 5, 2005, it was determined that an environmental assessment was required in relation to the project because the Parks Canada Agency considered taking action in relation to subsection 18(1) of the National Parks General Regulations.

Project Description (as posted in the Notice of Commencement)

Sunshine Village proposes to install an Ultra-Violet (U-V) disinfection unit in its waste water treatment plant to replace the existing chlorination unit. The chlorination unit will be retained as a back-up unit. The unit will be installed in the existing building. Effluent from the plant is released to Sunshine Creek.

Final Decision

A decision was taken on September 6, 2005 and was that the authority may exercise any power or perform any duty or function with respect to the project because, after taking into consideration the screening report and taking into account the implementation of appropriate mitigation measures, the authority is of the opinion that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
