Important Notice Regarding QBL Development!

Environment and Conservation - September 4, 2015

Environmental Assessment Bulletin

The Honourable Dan Crummell, Minister of Environment and Conservation, has announced the following events relative to Part 10 Environmental Assessment of the Environmental Protection Act.


Bay de Verde Shell By-Product Drying Facility                              (Reg. 1808)

Proponent:   Quinlan Brothers Limited

Quinlan Brothers Limited is proposing the development of a shell by-product drying facility in an effort to deal with the vast quantities of shell waste generated from their primary shellfish processing activities in Bay de Verde. Currently, the shell is landfilled at a site approved by the Town of Bay de Verde and the Province.  To align with the Provincial Waste Management Strategy, Quinlan Brothers is proposing the development of this new facility, to be constructed approximately 600 metres off Main Road in Bay de Verde on the same route currently being used to transport shell to the existing landfill.  Shell waste from the plant will be transported to the facility for processing (drying and packaging) without the use of any chemicals and the packaged product will be shipped to market.  Air emissions will be steam from the drying process while small amounts of water from the washing process will be diverted to a septic system.  Construction is expected to commence late Fall 2015.

The undertaking was registered on September 1, 2015; the deadline for public comments is October 9, 2015; and the ministerís decision is due by October 16, 2015.

Due to ongoing construction and the need to constantly shut off the Town's water supply a precautionary boil water advisory is now in effect. Please note that although the water supply you receive is being chlorinated it is advised that you bring any water you intend on digesting to a rapid boil for 1 minute before use. This advisory will remain in effect until further notice.

Summer Construction Project Notice
Notice to Residents and Visitors to Bay de Verde.  

Starting on Monday August 3th constructions projects will begin.  

There will be paving on Tavernor's Road and a sewer expansion project on Cherry Hill that may affect vehicle traffic.  

Also the breakwater expansion project will begin and may cause disruptions down by the plant as well as noise throughout the community from blasting and constructions work.

We are sorry for any inconveniences this may cause and ask you use caution or avoid these areas if at all possible.

Bay de Verde | A Town with a Rich History

The Bay de Verde Heritage House was built in 1896 by Mr. John Blundon and family of Bay de Verde. The structure of the house is a good example of Merchant Class Victorian housing. The house was donated by Mrs. Dorothy Blundon and family to the Town of Bay de Verde on September 16, 1996 (exactly 100 years after it was constructed). It is now preserved and used as a Heritage House.
