Clean Harbors planning to build 624 person camp on Upper Halfway Road

Clean Harbors Lodging is intending to construct an industrial camp along the Upper Halfway Road. The camp would house 624 people and would border the Halfway River to the south, roughly 41 kilometres from the Alaska Highway.

According to an application received by the PRRD, the camp will be closed, not serve alcohol and have 24 hour security on site. The camp intends to have a full time medic on site as well to limit impacts to the health care system.

Despite that the City of Fort St. John issued a response to the PRRD where they expressed concern of the ability to provide health services to camp workers, and the ability to provide health services for the resident population.
