Kincardine has given initial approval to a municipal access agreement with Bruce Power as part of the company's off-site monitoring program.

In committee-of-the-whole Wednesday night (March 12), council was told of the request to place 26 remote gamma-monitoring devices along municipal road allowances.

Council first heard of the new off-site monitoring in April, 2013, when Dan McArthur of Bruce Power presented the details of the new system that would replace the current system.

Currently, there are 105 monitoring devices within a 10-kilometre radius of the Bruce Power site that require the dispatch of Bruce Power staff to retrieve samples for analysis.

The new system would add 53 remote monitors (16 on the Bruce site and 37 in the primary zone), 26 of which would be located on municipal road allowances. The remote monitoring devices would be self-powered and provide real-time data to the Bruce Power site.

The municipal access agreement includes clauses such as: use of right-of-way; insurance; manner of work; remedial work; and monitor locations. Bruce Power will be required to obtain and pay all required permits and fees. 

A letter notifying the neighbouring landowners has been sent from Bruce Power, and the sites have been reviewed by staff.

Committee-of-the-whole agreed with the municipal access agreement, with final approval coming to council at the March 19 meeting.
