Xeneca’s response to ORA Comments, dated 11 August 2011.
September 9, 2011:
Request to Xeneca: ORA requests that The Chute, Third Falls proposals, and the Ivanhoe Lake dam, be addressed under one Environmental Assessment, as these three dams would be operated as one unit, and would have a very significant negative cumulative impact on the Ivanhoe River, Groundhog River, and all downstream riverine ecosystems.
Xeneca’s Response: Cumulative effects will be addressed in the Third Falls Class EA Report. Xeneca is not currently preparing the Environmental Report for Third Falls GS.
