Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Fire Alarm Panel Replacement Project

In support of ongoing operations at the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), a Project for replacing fire alarm panels is proposed at the Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL), Chalk River Laboratory (CRL) site.    The proposed activities will be carried out on previously disturbed land and will involve the installation of fiber-optic cable underground.  Minimal excavation will be required when existing infrastructure is not sufficient in order to successfully create a network between all alarm panels.  All physical activities will be conducted in accordance with CNL's Environmental Policy and applicable legislation.

Latest update

January 10, 2021. Canadian Nuclear Laboratories, on behalf of Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL) has determined that the proposed Fire Alarm Panel Replacement Project at AECL's Chalk River site is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. Potential environmental effects will be managed through technically and economically feasible mitigation measures and implemented for the following: air, water, soil, migratory birds, and species at risk, wildlife, and vegetation. Therefore, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories, on behalf of Atomic Energy of Canada may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
