PT Safety Notice - January 5, 2018
Unsafe Ice Condition Warning

Tugboat Sheri Lynn S will be breaking ice from Picton Bay to Amherst Island all winter 2018

Picton, Ontario - January 5, 2018

Picton Terminals’ new tugboat Sheri Lynn S will be breaking ice from Picton Bay to Amherst Island throughout the winter. Picton Terminals wants local sled and ice fishers to enjoy winter fun but be aware of Safe Ice Conditions and reminds people that all ice on or near shipping routes and icebreaking operations, should be considered unsafe. Ship tracks may not freeze over immediately and newly-fallen snow may obscure ship tracks. Please use caution. Picton Terminals will be working throughout winter 2018 to deliver equipment and supplies to the new Amherst Island ferry dock project and the Toronto harbour project. Additionally, the Sheri Lynn S will break ice as required for the MTO ferries at Glenora and Amherst Island. The Sheri Lynn S crew will not be ice breaking daily but will work throughout the winter to keep the shipping routes navigable.

The Sheri Lynn S is equipped with an ice-breaking hull. She is a DAMEN STAN TUG® 1606 ICE with 2x Caterpillar C18 TA/A and LENGTH O.A. 16.76 m., BEAM O.A. 5.94 m.

PT Receives Provincial Officers Order #1742-ASXLMQ Nov. 21, 2017

MOECC and PT have been working hard for this day!

Following a busy year of water studies and meetings with consultants and MOECC, a solid plan is in place to address stormwater management. All parties worked together to create a permanent solution to address salt-laden stormwater using dry storage.  Additionally, an interim solution of ponding and controlled water flow is being implemented as of now.

MOECC and Picton Terminals came to a solution that all support in principle.   Following 30 years with nothing in place in the way of stormwater management on the Port of Hallowell site, the PT team is very proud to have found solutions to Picton Bay’s long-lived issue of road salt storage.  Picton Terminals has begun construction of the interim plan.    Engineering is in progress for dry salt storage.

The attached order is MOECC’s direction to PT to complete the interim stormwater management plan, commence dry storage engineering and execute the plan.
