Soil and Groudwater Clean up from Historical Contamination

In 2009, after confirmation of diesel contamination at the old locomotive inspection pit in Sept-Îles, IOC set up a five-year program to decontaminate the soil and local area groundwater. Progress is monitored with regular sampling and a final sampling program will confirm the success of the program, expected for 2013. Contamination around the old fuel tank farm is also being treated.
