An extremely successful joint venture project, undertaken in 4 phases, over 3 years, creating long lasting beneficial land use for the Kwantlen First Nation
The Fraser Cedar site is an important foreshore area on Kwantlen Indian Reserve No. 1, in Whonnock. Adjacent to the Fraser River and Whonnock Creek, it was an area traditionally used by ancestors of the Kwantlen people, and continues to be an important area for Kwantlen’s future generations. Seyem’Qwantlen and Milestone Environmental Contracting Inc. established a joint venture to complete the Remediation and Restoration of the Former Fraser Cedar Mill Site. This tough job presented numerous technical challenges that were overcome through teamwork between Seyem’Qwantlen and Milestone. The partners worked collaboratively and respectfully with government funding and various consultants to ensure a successful remedial project.
