City approves $4.7 million for Sydenham-Pearl remediation

Brant News

Staff Report BRANT NES The Sydenham-Pearl brownfield site will be cleaned over the next four years with $4.7 million in debenture financing approved by city council’s committee of the whole on Monday. That dollar figure was reached following a two-phase environmental assessment at the former Crown Electric and Domtar-Northern Globe manufacturing sites at 17 and 22 Sydenham Street, respectively. The assessment found petroleum hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds and heavy metal concentrations in the soil. The remediation and subsequent “greening” of the former industrial lands would allow the six-acre site to be developed as parkland or housing.
