Fraser Surrey Docks (FSD) wants to dispose of rain water contaminated by coal dust from US thermal coal. It decided the cheapest and easiest way to do this is to discharge this waste to our sanitary sewer system.
Metro Vancouver called for public comments on this proposal. Over 3000 people wrote to ask that they reject FSDs' application.
Our regional government now needs to decide if this proposal presents a risk to health, safety and the environment, and whether it fits with regional waste management goals.
Since 2011, Real Port Hearings has received over 10,000 comments from citizens about the proposed Fraser Surrey Docks coal export facility.
To date only 6 of them have been in favour of the proposal.
