Results of Environmental Site Assessments and Proposed Remediation Strategy

October 2, 2012
6 – 8 p.m.
Brantford Polish Hall
154 Pearl Street, Brantford

PURPOSE OF THE PUBLIC MEETING

The Sydenham-Pearl Brownfield site consists of two properties: 17 Sydenham Street and 22 Sydenham Street. Both properties have a history of industrial uses but are presently vacant and are owned by the City.

The City has retained the consulting firm CH2M HILL to complete the required Phase One and Phase Two Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) reports for each property to determine the type and level of soil and groundwater contamination on each property. Further, the consultants worked on developing recommendations for a remediation strategy, including establishing cost estimates to implement the remediation work.

At the last meeting held on July 31, 2012, the Project Team shared preliminary results of the Phase One and Phase Two Environmental Site Assessments. They also provided a brief outline of some of the remediation options that could be considered for the site.

At this meeting, the Project Team will provide updates on the final Environmental Site Assessment results, as well as more detail on the recommended Remediation Strategy for the site.
