Hatfield was engaged by the BC Environmental Assessment Office to conduct a third-party technical review of studies associated with Teck Coal’s Baldy Ridge Extension (BRE) Project.

Hatfield’s scope included:

  • Review of the hydrogeology section of the EA Application;
  • Review of supporting technical studies related to hydrogeology, water quality and hydrogeologic modelling;
  • Review of regional groundwater monitoring studies;
  • Evaluation of the adequacy of site characterization, the conceptual model and the development and use of the numerical model, in consideration of Ministry guidelines, industry practices, and the context of the existing project;
  • Provision of comments on the Application and review of responses;
  • Participation in working group meetings; and
  • Provision of advice and feedback pertaining to potential Certificate conditions.

Hatfield was engaged in the project review over several months, between February and August 2016. The project was awarded an Environmental Assessment Certificate in September 2016.
