Additional Information

The Site is located in Esquimalt, BC, and comprises the uplands and foreshore area in the northeast corner of Plumper Bay, Esquimalt Harbour, adjacent to the west side of the Trio Ready-Mix Ltd. concrete plant and the Esquimalt IR. The site has historically been used for, or adjacent to, numerous industrial activities including a cannery, sawmill, and Fibremax Log Sort. The shoreline of the site has also been subjected to historical infilling, with fill of an unknown volume, source and quality. Suspect fill material and debris (including metals, brick, and refuse) are present across the Site. The current shoreline was created as a result of infilling of the foreshore areas in Plumper Bay between the late-1960s and the mid-1980s. The Site has been used for a variety of industrial activities since that time.
