Contaminated Soil Remediation

The proposed Project will consist of excavation of approximately 4,000 m3 of contaminated soil (metals and PAHs) at four sites (AEC 1, AEC 2, AEC 3, AEC 4). The depth of soil excavation will occur to bedrock and excavated soil will be disposed of at a provincially approved off-site disposal facility.

Backfill used for site restoration purposes will be imported and comply with federal standards. Imported fill will be tested by the Engineer in accordance with industry requirements into ensure it is clean.

Approximately 500 m2 of the parking lot near AEC 2 will be removed and reinstalled.

Some vegetation clearing may take place as small forbs, graminoids, shrubs, and trees may be present at the site and require removal prior to excavation work. Wood and plant waste will be sent to an applicable waste site for composting or disposal.
