The Independent Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC)
- Provides technical and scientific advice/input on the development of the monitoring programs, management plans and other mitigation strategies;
- Ensures independent oversight of the monitoring programs during the capital dredge campaign; and
- Reviews reports on monitoring programs and the environmental impacts of the Channel Upgrade project.
The Capital Dredging Implementation Committee (CDIC)
This committee will oversee the operational and logistical aspects of the capital dredge program.
The Compliance Regulatory Oversight Committee (CROC)
This committee will review and approve plans that are required by approval conditions. It also provides regulatory advice as well as overseeing compliance with the approval conditions and the environment monitoring programs during capital dredging.
