March 28, 2014 – The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Tazi Twé Hydroelectric Project (formerly known as the Elizabeth Falls Hydroelectric Project) located in Saskatchewan.

The agency invites the public to comment on the potential environmental effects of the project—and the proposed measures to prevent or mitigate those effects—as described in a summary of the proponent’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

This is the third of four opportunities for Canadians to comment on this project. All comments received will be considered public. Written comments must be submitted by April 27, 2014, to:

Tazi Twé Hydroelectric Project
Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
425-10115 100A Street
Edmonton, AB T5J 2W2
780-495-2037 – Tel
780-495-2876 – Fax
TaziTwe@ceaa-acee.gc.ca

Following this comment period, the CEAA will prepare a draft Environmental Assessment Report, setting out its conclusions and recommendations regarding the potential environmental effects of the project, the proposed mitigation measures, and the significance of any remaining adverse environmental effects. A public comment period on the draft Environmental Assessment Report will be announced at a later date.
