NOTICE OF UPCOMING WORK – Former Coal Gasification Plant Site

As part of Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI) activities, our contractor will be performing preparatory work to facilitate the upcoming removal of industrial waste and historic low-level radioactive waste from the Former Coal Gasification Plant site.

This work is scheduled to begin in August 2023 and includes fence installation, vegetation removal, soil excavation and property restoration.

John Street or Alexander Street may experience intermittent traffic stoppage. Please obey flag people and any posted signage.

The Former Coal Gasification Plant site 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.
