Esquimalt Graving Dock (EGD) Waterlot Remediation Project Phase
2 South Jetty Under-Pier Sediment Remediation
Constance Cove of Esquimalt Harbour on Vancouver Island, B.C.

Work Description:
Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) intends to
issue an invitation to tender (ITT) for the remediation of
contaminated marine sediments within the South Jetty under-pier
area as Phase 2 of the Esquimalt Graving Dock (EGD) Waterlot
Remediation Project. PWGSC also requires the demolition of the
timber pile supported sections of the South Jetty, to provide
access to the under-pier area for remediation. Rebuilding the
demolished sections of the South Jetty is not part of this

The EGD facility is located in Constance Cove of Esquimalt
Harbour on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

The sediment remediation required by this Contract is not a
standard marine dredging and disposal project.

- Material to be dredged and excavated material within the EGD
Work Site is located in difficult access areas and is
contaminated with various chemicals of concern.

- Contractor shall use extra care to conduct its work in a
manner that is suitable for environmental cleanup and not in a
production dredging manner.

- Marine sediments will be removed as part of this work for
disposal at an existing Authorized Disposal Facility and
Hazardous Waste Management Facility located in Canada.

- The Detailed Site Investigation (DSI) characterization of the
material to be dredged and excavated is suitable for waste
classification purposes. Contractor shall be responsible for
any additional sediment characterization that may be required
during the execution of the contract for health and safety
purposes, transportation, disposal, or to meet regulatory or
permit requirements. Some of the sediment is classified as
Hazardous Waste, according to the British Columbia Hazardous
Waste Regulation (BC HWR). The remainder is classified as IL +
waste material, according to the British Columbia Contaminated
Sites Regulation (BC CSR). The total estimated quantity of
sediment to be removed from the site, including estimated
contingency re-dredging, is 40,000 cubic metres.

- Re-suspension of contaminated sediments during construction
activities is of great concern to PWGSC. Re-suspension of
contaminated sediments may result in re-contaminating portions
of the EGD Work Site, and areas outside the EGD Work Site, that
have been cleaned up as part of this work or previous
remediation completed within the EGD Waterlot. The Contractor
shall conduct its work in a manner to minimize, to the extent
practicable, re-suspension and redistribution of contaminated
sediment, and to comply with environmental protection
requirements in the Specifications, Environmental Management
Plan, permit and regulations.

- The work includes re-driving of the existing sheet pile
containment wall around the perimeter of the South Jetty, design
and installation of a temporary sediment resuspension barrier
affixed to the re-driven sheet pile wall, and placement of
engineered capping on the seabed after dredging. The re-driven
sheet pile containment wall and temporary sediment resuspension
barrier are to be removed from the site upon comlpetion of the

- The work includes demolition and offsite disposal of timber
pile-supported sections of the South Jetty, re-use of timber
components for marine protection of the remaining wharf
infrastructure, and removal / modification of mechanical and
electrical utilities.
