The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Moose Jaw Combined Cycle Power Station Project, located in Saskatchewan.
To help inform this decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups on the project and its potential effects on the environment, as described in the summary of the project description.
The Proposed Project
Saskatchewan Power Corporation (SaskPower) is proposing the construction and operation of a new fossil fuel-fired electrical generating facility with a production capacity of up to 366 megawatts, located on the southeast edge of the City of Moose Jaw in Saskatchewan. The proposed Moose Jaw Combined Cycle Power Station Project would consist of a combined cycle natural gas electrical generating facility and would also include the construction of underground water infrastructure, road upgrades, an overhead 230-kilovolt transmission line, a 25-kilovolt power distribution line, a fibre-optic line and natural gas infrastructure.
