The Proposed Project

This project involves paving of the main parking lot including side and rear of building (approx. size 4500m2). Some patch repairs in the same areas were completed in 2008. Paving will include areas all the way back to Special I and to the tarmac area. This will also include performing an elevation and drainage study to identify the current drainage situation and allow the modification of the grounds prior to paving. This site has known locations of soil and groundwater contamination. Available records must be reviewed by the contractor and consultant before the beginning of the work.  Any suspected presence of staining or odours indicative of the possible presence of fuel in the soil or groundwater must be tested.
