Migratory bird nesting season is now underway and will continue until mid-August. As a measure to protect birds and deter them from nesting in construction zones, JGC Fluor has installed air cannons throughout the project site. They are programmed to operate daily from 6:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and again from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Deterring nesting in the project zone decreases the potential for birds abandoning nests with eggs or chicks before they’ve fledged. Prior to work commencing, environmental monitors will conduct surveys to ensure there are no active nests. In the event an active bird nest is discovered, the appropriate buffer zone will be established.
