Soil Remediation and Slope Stabilization

Fisheries and Oceans Canada – Real Property, Safety and Security proposes to undertake soil remediation and slope stabilization at the Mullins Point Front and Rear Range Lights, located in North Wallace, Cumberland County, NS. The proposed project involves the remediation of the site via removal and disposal of contaminated soil. The soil will be transported offsite and disposed at a licensed and approved disposal facility. The remediated areas will be backfilled with clean topsoil and then covered with hydroseed. In addition, the rapidly eroding shoreline will be stabilized with rock.
