Waterworks – East

Back To Map


  • Approximately 20,687 m3 of historic low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) deposited by Eldorado along the waterfront
Site Details
  • The remediated water treatment plant area effectively divides the site into two LLRW-contaminated parcels.
  • East Parcel contains four buildings and three large underground tanks formerly used by the Port Hope Waterworks
  • In 2003 the Construction Monitoring Program removed approx. 17,000 m3 of contaminated soil during the construction of the Port Hope Water Treatment Plant – this material is temporarily stored on the Centre Pier
Remediation/Restoration Plans
  • The waste will travel along the South Transportation Route to the Long-Term Waste Management Facility
  • Once confirmed that all contaminated material has been removed, backfill will be placed and portions of the west beach will be restored with topsoil and indigenous vegetation
