Request EAB Deny City's Stay Application

NEWS RELEASE

Colliery Dams Update

The City of Nanaimo has received a copy of a written submission from the Comptroller of Water Rights’ lawyer regarding the City’s application for a stay of the Comptroller Order to remediate the Colliery Dams.  This submission will be forwarded to the Environmental Appeal Board (EAB) requesting that the City’s application for a stay be denied. 

A copy of the Comptroller of Water Rights lawyer’s submission has been placed in the legal section of the City's Colliery Dam Information Page.

Previously, the City lawyer had made application for an appeal and stay of the Comptroller’s Order as directed by Council. The City lawyer will make a further written submission in response to the Comptroller’s lawyer’s submission, which will be completed by June 24.

Once the City lawyer’s application is received, the EAB will schedule a review of the written submissions of both parties and provide a decision on the City’s application for a stay. The EAB’s decision is expected in early July.

Members of the public seeking additional information concerning the Colliery Dams are encouraged to visit the Colliery Dams Information page located on the City's website.

"Once the EAB has made a decision on the City’s request for a stay, a report will be forwarded to City Council to determine the next steps regarding the Colliery Dams." - Toby Seward Acting GM, Community Development & Protective Services City of Nanaimo
