Soil Treatment Facility
Safeguarding the Environment
In 2017, our partnership proudly unveiled a groundbreaking achievement – Nunavut’s first licensed soil treatment facility (STF), located in Cambridge Bay. This facility serves as a testament to our commitment to sustainable solutions.
Soil treatment facilities are utilized for the receipt of contaminated soils that can be treated to levels approved for beneficial re-use. Jurisdictional regulations govern requirements of the facilities engineering and operations through formal permitting processes. Facilities are frequently located adjacent to municipal solid waste landfills, so treated soils can be re-used as cover material for low density municipal solid waste.
A formal profiling process is completed, including chemical analysis and review by technical staff to understand levels of contamination and ensure that treatment can be achieved.
By combining our expertise with cutting-edge technology, we contribute to the conservation of the region’s natural beauty for generations to come.
