Contaminant Details

Contamination Estimate

The following contaminated media may exist on the site:

Contaminant Type Medium Type
PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) Soil

Action Plan

The hydrometric network uses different methods to measure water levels. One method involves the use of wells constructed with creosote treated wood. As scientific understanding of creosote evolved it was discovered that sources treated with these chemicals may adversely affect the environment. In order to correctly assess its liability at each site, WSC plans to begin investigating hydrometric stations that used wood treated with these chemicals in fiscal year 08-09.

Additional Information

During the fiscal year 08-09, Water Survey Canada will be performing assessments only in order to identify the stations with contamination.
