A number of residences and private properties throughout the urban area of Port Hope will require a cleanup and restoration. These properties are determined through a series of tests performed as part of the Property Radiological Survey of approximately 4,800 properties.
Property owners are contacted for written consent to conduct the property testing.
Home visits will be required to complete the testing. All visits are scheduled directly with property owners. Testing
can take up to 24 months to complete.
CNL provides the results of the testing to its design consultant.
The design consultant schedules multiple appointments with owners to map the property’s key features, utilities and landscaping.
CNL holds meetings with the designer and property owner to review the remediation plan in which the design consultant has considered the individual property, adjacent properties and the overall neighbourhood.
Property owner review of final design package leads to sign off of the Remediation & Restoration Agreement by the owner and CNL.
Cleanups are typically scheduled by neighbourhood to minimize disruption to the community.
The design information is combined with cleanup details in one package known as the Remediation & Restoration Agreement. This package provides the owner with a detailed description of the proposed work for their property. Once the Remediation and Restoration Agreement is finalized and signed by the owners and CNL cleanup work will be scheduled.
Remediation activities include the following:
Identify sensitive features and utilities.
Remove trees, shrubs, impacted structures, store property owner items to facilitate cleanup.
Remove waste, verify soil meets cleanup criteria, and backfill.
Restore property features including decks, structures, fences and landscaping to building code specifications.
The number of site visits and inspections varies by property.
Here is what to expect during the PHAI Design, Remediation and Restoration phases.
