Reasons for a Federal Assessment

On January 9, 2008, it was determined that an environmental assessment was required in relation to the project because Transport Canada was the proponent for the project.

Project Description (as posted in the Notice of Commencement)

Remediation of approximately 11,360 m3 of contaminated soils impacted with lead and PAH from activities related to a former skeet club located northwest of the intersection of Glendale Avenue and Government Road, in St. Catherine's, Ontario. Remediation consists of the following major components: site preparation; excavation; stabilization of hazardous materials; off-site transportation and disposal of non-hazardous materials; backfilling excavated areas with clean fill; and site restoration.

Final Decision

A decision was taken on April 8, 2008 and was that the authority may exercise any power or perform any duty or function with respect to the project because, after taking into consideration the screening report and taking into account the implementation of appropriate mitigation measures, the authority is of the opinion that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
