South Swamp Groundwater Remediation, Chalk River Facility, Ontario

ECC/QMLP executed a $2.8 million CAD remediation project at Atomic Energy Canada Limited's Chalk River Facility in Ontario, Canada. The project involved the installation of a funnel and gate permeable reactive barrier (PRB) treatment system to immobilize/remove radiological contamination migrating in groundwater from an upgradient Waste Management Area.

EW-3a Impacted Soil Excavation and On-Site Stockpiling, Port Hope, Ontario

ECC/QMLP executed a $4.15 million CAD remediation project for the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories at the site of the future Port Hope Long-Term Waste Management Facility in Ontario, Canada. ECC/QMLP performed the excavation and segregation of low-level radioactive waste and stockpiling at a designated location in preparation for the construction of the future waste management facility construction. The project also involved implementing a radiation protection program at the site and conducting verification sampling to ensure the removal of all impacted waste soil.

Port Hope Early Works 1 Cell Construction, Port Hope, Ontario

ECC/QMLP executed a $16.5 million CAD project at the site of the future Port Hope Long-Term Waste Management Facility that involved construction of the first cell for the Long-Term Waste Management facility. This required preparation of the subgrade, installation of a base clay layer, and deployment of various liners based on an engineered design and a protection cover. In addition, the project involved the excavation and disposal of petroleum-contaminated soil and clearing and grubbing of vegetation.

Port Hope Long-Term Waste Management Facility Construction, Operation and Closure, Port Hope, Ontario

ECC/QMLP is executing a >$100 Million CAD project to construct and operate the Long-Term Waste Management Facility at Port Hope. As part of this project, ECC/QMLP constructed all the facility infrastructure required for operation of the facility in accordance with license requirements. Both on-site and off-site wastes (delivered by others) are being placed at the previously constructed Cell 1 as well as Cells 2a, 2b and 3, which are also being constructed by ECC/QMLP. The project also involves the installation of a leachate pumping system connecting the landfill cells to the Port Hope groundwater treatment system. Following the placement of all low-level radioactive waste from the Port Hope area, ECC/QMLP will cap the facility and certify closure of the site, handing it over to the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories for long-term monitoring.
