I know that PHAI cleanup work may be affecting you more than expected. Your view may be impacted by PHAI construction in the community or you may be experiencing a lengthy cleanup on your own property. While our CNL team has made progress, especially on the larger cleanup sites, we have also had challenges. Work in residential areas has not always proceeded as planned, and
I know this has been frustrating to residents. I want to assure you we are striving to improve every day.
PHAI work is complex. Ensuring all activities are done safely and compliantly can take extra time, but this is necessary for the protection of people and the environment.
We have heard your concerns about delays and about the unintended eﬀects of the cleanup on Port Hope’s heavily treed areas. We are working to address both these issues by requesting a change to the PHAI Cleanup Criteria.
Thank you for your continued patience. Stay tuned for additional updates, and please stay safe.
Mark Hughey, CNL General Manager
