Mine Access Roads in Northern Canada - Economic Implications of Climate Change

Mine Access Roads in Northern Canada - Economic Implications of Climate Change report cover tags: Roads and Associated Structures

Note: This project used the PIEVC Protocol for various parts of the work, as well as additional surrounding work. An example of how the PIEVC Protocol can be integrated into large projects of wider scope.

This study evaluates the climate-related vulnerabilities and related costs and benefits of the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road (TCWR), a mine access road built mainly over frozen lakes in the northeastern region of the Northwest Territories (NWT). The TCWR is the main access road for three active diamond mines, as well as one that will be active in the next year,... click to learn more

Metro Vancouver Fraser Sewerage Area Infrastructure

Metro Vancouver Fraser Sewerage Area Infrastructure cover tags: Stormwater, Wastewater

In 2008, Metro Vancouver and Engineers Canada cooperated in the Vancouver Sewerage Area (VSA) vulnerability assessment. The VSA study was one of seven original pilot study applications of an assessment protocol developed by Engineers Canada for use with all types of infrastructure across Canada. That study focussed on an area that is largely combined (i.e.sanitary sewage and stormwater conveyed in the same pipe) and currently undergoing significant change through an ongoing program of sewer separation (i.e. separating stormwater and sanitary sewage into different pipes). The Fraser... click to learn more

City of Nelson Stormwater Management System

City of Nelson Stormwater Management System Assessment cover tags: Stormwater

The City of Nelson recognizes the importance of preparing for the potential impacts of future climate change, specifically relating to the effects of flooding and extreme rainfall events. As a participant in CBT's Communities Adapting to Climate Change Initiative (CACCI), the City identified the possibility of vulnerabilities in their stormwater infrastructure and engaged focus to further assess the system using the Engineers Canada Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) Protocol. This Protocol provides the framework to enable public service decision makers to... click to learn more
