Lehigh proposes new fly ash terminal, Canada
Published: 29 May 2014


Lehigh Inland Cement Company is proposing to construct and operate a fly ash terminal in Saskatchewan on land owned by Canadian National Railway Company (CN).

The project involves the construction of a truck unloading facility, fly ash storage facility, and a railcar load out facility.

The project is designed to accommodate a storage capacity of 20,000t of fly ash and would be in operation for a minimum of 20 years.

Fly ash will be transported from the SaskPower Boundary Dam fly ash storage and load out facility using a fully enclosed trucking system with bottom-dump trailer units.

The project will be located on modified land currently used for hay production and therefore will not cause a significant impact to the surface environment in the area.  As a result, the project is not considered a development and will not be required to undergo an environmental impact assessment.
