Further to CNL’s January 25 disclosure of water flowing from a legacy ground and surface water collection reservoir at the Port Granby Waste Management Facility, CNL confirms that there was no direct discharge to Lake Ontario. Furthermore, the investigation revealed that the estimated volume of water released was between 2.5 and 7 cubic metres.
Water and soil samples, collected in accordance with industry best practices and sent to an accredited third-party laboratory for analysis, are within the range expected for this area. These results confirm that at no time was there a risk to the health or safety of workers or the public and that the effect on the environment was negligible.
Remedial actions have been implemented to prevent a recurrence.
