St. Clair Region Conservation Authority to Hold Open Houses for Detailed Engineering and Design Phase of the St. Clair River Sediment Management Project

Members of the public are invited to attend one of three open houses to learn how plans are moving forward to manage three areas of historical sediment contamination in the St. Clair River. The open houses will inform local communities about the tasks and timelines of the project.

In early December, the SCRCA announced they had received funding from Environment and Climate Change Canada, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks and Dow Canada to develop a detailed engineering and design plan for remediation of sediments in the river.

The design phase is expected to last up to two years.
