Trans Mountain is committed to best practices in reclamation, always striving for opportunities leading to advancement. As with all of its construction projects, Trans Mountain will reclaim any areas that are affected by the proposed pipeline expansion project.
Trans Mountain is committed to full reclamation of the pipeline right-of-way and surrounding areas following construction. This could include adding new footpaths, developing new habitats, improving water crossings or bettering migration corridors.
Reclamation efforts could include the planting of native plant and grass species, riparian and wetland areas, wildlife habitats and any other areas disturbed during construction.
Post-construction monitoring and ongoing right-of-way maintenance will continue following construction.
Anchor Loop Project
Trans Mountain worked closely with Parks Canada and BC Parks to construct the Trans Mountain Anchor Loop Project. As a result, the Anchor Loop Project received the 2010 Alberta Emerald Award in recognition of its environmental stewardship during construction and restoration.
