Cargill is collaborating with the City of North Vancouver on a voluntary multi-phase project in efforts to reduce noise impact levels caused by grain terminals located on Vancouver’s North Shore.
Gerry Dickie, general manager, Cargill Limited grain handling and export, said: “The challenge we are faced with is that our facility is located in close proximity to the North Shore residential community.
"We have received candid feedback from the community and want to ensure that we are taking appropriate measures to address this issue.”
Construction and mitigation efforts will begin in the next few months and North Shore residents can expect noise reduction as early as June, according to the company.
The multi-phase project will consist of the installation of noise barriers and silencers and the re-direction of ventilation fans.
