With this project, the MELCC’s Direction du passif environnemental wishes to proceed with the rehabilitation of sites 403A and 406A of the Mid-Canada radar surveillance line. The Mid-Canada Line was built in the 1950s at the 55th parallel and was abandoned in 1965. Several of the 45 sites along the radar surveillance line have never been rehabilitated and numerous old infrastructure and equipment, such as empty fuel barrels, are still present at the sites. These sites contribute to the deterioration of the quality of the environment and pose a risk to the health and safety of landusers. The rehabilitation project includes the removal of hazardous materials, the dismantling of old buildings and the removal of equipment present as well as the removal of all contaminated soil. Dismantled equipment and contaminated soil will be transported to authorized storage or treatment sites.
