Abstract

A review was conducted by representatives of departments and agencies of the Provincial and Federal governments to evaluate the adequacy of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in addressing the issues raised by the project of a 450 MW coal-or oil-fired generating station at Belledune, New Brunswick. Though this review concluded that the EIA is generally satifactory a number of outstanding issues remain to be resolve. The EIA lacks depth in its examination of ways to address electrical demand and global environmental concerns. NB Power's policy of pre-building large generating stations and using the export sales of electric power to ensure profitability should be carefully reviewed. The assumptions of the EIA with respect to end use reduction, cogeneration, and non-utility energy production are criticized. Other topics which were not addressed in sufficient detail in the EIA are the dredging of the Belledure harbor, the impact on lobster fishing and its appropriate compensation, the disposal of construction wastes, land ownership, and the predicted unusually high dry depostion of acidic compounds.
