• Ohamil Indian Reserve 1;
• Tzeachten Indian Reserve 13; and
• Surrey Bend Regional Park.
Any assessment must include:
a) environmental alignment sheets at an appropriate scale, clearly depicting the
proposed route re-alignments;
b) results of any pre-construction surveys within the areas that were not previously
subject to such surveys, and an indication of potential residual effects;
c) all associated mitigation measures that are beyond those identified during the

b) the selected design temperatures are based on historical, location-specific
extreme daily maximum and minimum temperatures, as opposed to average
temperatures; and
c) the extent of the historical weather data used is commensurate with the
