Eagles Nest Along Pipeline Route

Eagles Nest

The Raw Waterline Intake Station at Widewater and Pipeline Project from Widewater to the Town of Slave Lake is well under way with the Intake Station completion date targeted for mid-August this year and the pipeline completion targeted for mid-June this year. 

There are 3 eagles nests along the pipeline route that we have been monitoring since day one of the project and now that the eagles have returned we have ramped up our monitoring process by means of a full time on site Biologist.

 The eagles nests were identified during the early scoping phase of the project in 2016/2017 and a mitigation plan was developed and approved by the Alberta Government's, Provincial Biologist. When the eagles returned a couple weeks ago, we had our engineering consultant provide a Biologist to come to site for a few days and educate our on-site inspector and our pipeline contractor on the guidelines around working in proximity to an eagles nest and how to monitor the eagles behavior to ensure they were not being disturbed by the work activity in the area. 

The eagles were moving between 3 different nests for a couple weeks and it appears that they have now settled on one nest and looks like they have laid eggs as they are sitting in the nest full time now. We have our biologist back on site full time now and he will remain here monitoring the eagles until the pipeline work has moved out of their territory which should be in about a week or so. 

We just wanted to let the area residents know that we are aware of the nesting eagles and we are following all the guidelines set out by the Alberta Government Provincial Biologist to ensure they are being looked after properly.
