As part of Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI) activities, our contractor will be removing industrial waste and historic low-level radioactive waste from the Lions Recreation Centre Park site.
This cleanup work is scheduled to begin in summer 2023 and includes transportation of contaminated soil to safe storage along the designated PHAI transportation routes.
Access to the facility and parking lot will remain. Thomas Street will be closed at the parking area but will be accessible from Walton Street. Please obey any posted signage.
The Lions Recreation Centre Park is one of several municipally owned sites that are being cleaned up and restored through the PHAI, including the replanting of trees and other vegetation.
Canadian Nuclear Laboratories is committed to the safety of the public, its workers and the environment while undertaking this community-requested solution to a longstanding environmental issue.
