City of Hamilton taking steps to address contaminated soil in Centennial Heights Park

HAMILTON, ON – In August, the City of Hamilton’s hired consultant, Terraprobe, began preconstruction investigations at Centennial Heights Park as part of a park upgrades project. This included soil testing in alignment with routine provincial regulations related to on-site and excess soil management. Sample results provided last week found evidence of mercury, zinc, cadmium and lead within the soil that are above the provincial standard for parkland.
