Cote First Nation Wood Treatment Remediation Project

Cote First Nation operated a historical fencepost treatment facility through the 1980s that has resulted in some metals impacts primarily in the soils at a property located within the Badgerville town boundaries (09-35-30-32-W1).  Various surface soil samples were collected as well and test holes were drilled for the purpose of soil sample collection.  Groundwater monitoring wells were installed and groundwater samples have been collected and analyzed.  The soil samples confirmed exceedances of arsenic, copper and chromium. The site historically was capped with asphalt over a portion of it which was being utilized as a basketball court.As described above, surface, subsurface soils and groundwater have been assessed and metals impacts have been identified in the soils.  The project will result in the excavation of impacted materials and backfill with clean source material.  Construction (excavation) will be planned for summer 2021. There is authorization in place at a Class II Landfill to dispose of soils,
