Borehole drilling at former hospital site starts March 14, 2016

Wed, 09 Mar 2016

Starting next week (March 14, 2016), a drilling contractor for the town will be on the former hospital site to study the soil for any potential contamination.

Boreholes will be drilled at various locations on the site and soil samples will be taken and analyzed. The results will help us identify any concerns and develop plans to address them.

Drilling operations will be done during the day, Monday to Friday only. While there will be some noise on and off during the day for limited periods of time, the town will ensure the contractor complies with town by-laws.
