Action Plan

Transport Canada will continue to monitor the groundwater at the former FTA and UST sites until hydrocarbons fall below remedial guidelines. The LTU requires continued management until the soil is remediated. Once the soil is remediated below regulatory criteria the LTU will be decommissioned.

Additional Information

The UST site and FTA were excavated in 1998. The Land Treatment Unit that holds contaminated soil from these former sites has undergone continued management annually from 1999 to 2002.
