PHASE 2 -BLAST FURNACE STOCKYARD /
NO. 1 & 2 PIERS

 
 

The Blast Furnace Stockyard/No. 1 & 2 Piers program was started in June 2003. The program consisted of the following:

Investigation Type Number of samples
Boreholes 17
Monitor Wells 17
Test pits 27
Surface soil samples 12
Sediment samples 2
Surface water samples 3

In all, over 250 analyses were performed on approximately 120 soil and water samples. Laboratory testing indicates that PAH are occasionally present above some guideline values and, as in other study areas, some metals are present in the fill materials.

An area of petroleum and hydrocarbon impact located is to the east of the former No. 1 & 2 Piers (“Steel Pier” and “Ore Pier”). No other significant environmental issues were identified.

Phase 3 testing is completed.
