Flagging the Way

Locate-FlagsPHAI contractors are currently conducting fieldwork, as part of the Property Radiological Survey, on properties throughout Port Hope. Prior to the work – which includes borehole drilling/soil sampling – the utilities that service each property are located and marked (i.e. hydro, gas, Bell, etc) so the contractor can avoid them.  The locations are identified with flags, with spray paint also used in some areas to mark the utility lines. The flags will be removed by the contractor once the fieldwork has been completed and no further sub-surface investigations are required.
