Transmission Lines and Corridors
YUNI Environmental identifies potential impacts from proposed transmission line routes and infrastructure footprints through wildlife and species-at-risk surveys, habitat modeling, GIS mapping, pre-clearing bird nest searches and amphibian salvaging.
We design environmental monitoring programs , compensation options and implementation plans.
We believe that transmission lines and corridors can provide opportunities through careful planning and management to help improve and enhance important habitat for some species-at-risk.
What We Do
- Conduct environmental impact assessments to determine best alternate transmission line routes and infrastructure footprints.
Conduct baseline inventories and design environmental monitoring programs and implementation plans.
Produce species-at-risk habitat modeling and GIS mapping for infrastructure footprints and along transmission line corridors to guide routing and siting.
Initiate, manage and submit Applications to the Environmental Assessment Office for Environmental Assessment Certificate approval.
Complete pre-clearing wildlife surveys and inventories to guide construction scheduling and minimize wildlife disturbance.
Work together with First Nations to incorporate traditional knowledge and development concerns into project goals.
Consult with stakeholders to ensure their concerns are addressed responsibly and in an honest and forthright manner.
Initiate meaningful dialogue and negotiate equitable partnership agreements with affected First Nations.
- Design and implement compensation plans and habitats to meet or exceed project sustainability goals.
