Evaluation of the pipelines and associated watercourse crossings fisheries self-assessment tool: Fs70-7/2017-007E-PDF

“The Canadian Energy Pipelines Association (CEPA), in partnership with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) and the Canadian Gas Association (CGA), are revising existing Pipeline Associated Watercourse Crossings guidance (PAWC) to better align with the Fisheries Protection Program’s (FPP’s) new regulatory requirements and self-assessment approach. DFO’s online self-assessment process outlines criteria that guide project proponents on how to determine whether a project requires a review by DFO. The Watercourse Crossings guidelines consists of a Fisheries Self-Assessment Tool (FSAT) to assist pipeline industry proponents in determining which crossings require DFO review, and which crossings do not, provided specific avoidance and mitigation measures are followed. These Watercourse Crossings guidelines are the first national industry-lead guidelines developed under the new FPP. Ensuring that the approach used, and the guidance provided, is science/evidence-based will allow FPP to standardize an approach for guidelines development going forward"--Context, p. [1].
