The NunatuKavut Community Council has accused Nalcor Energy of hiding the true extent of the on-site preliminary work for the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project. Council president Todd Russell says photos taken during a helicopter flight over the work area Friday, Sept. 28, shows Nalcor has downplayed the amount of work being done around Muskrat Falls and violated federal Fisheries and environment regulations. Nalcor, however, says documentation filed shows NanatuKavut would have been aware of project timeline and construction plans. Photos in this slideshow courtesy of NunatuKavut Community Council.

    They certaintly seem to have moved forward with preparations a road is cut through the very remote area and some areas have been already been dug out. There is minimal equipment onsite and structures brought in for workers. Looks very much like preparations are underway and just waiting for that green light to go full speed ahead. I am not for or against because I don't feel I have a clear understanding of the entire project. But...I know all about planning and gearing up for a project and that's what I see in these pictures. These workers didn't decide to cut a road on their own, somone sent them in there.

    Seems to be a lot of work completed and money spent on a project that they don't even know will be going ahead.
