Reay Creek Bed Clean-up Contract Awarded to Tervita Corporation
"Undertaking the remediation of Reay Creek’s floor bed demonstrates our government’s ongoing commitment to cleaning up contaminated sites and protecting the environment.This work is important for the well-being of the fish that live and feed in Reay Creek."
The Honourable Marc Garneau
Minister of Transport
“Protecting fish and fish habitat is a top priority for our government. This new project will remove approximately 900 tonnes of contaminated sediments from portions of Reay Creek located on airport lands. That’s roughly equivalent to the weight of 550 cars. This will go a long way to restore the health of Reay Creek and protect trout and wild Pacific salmon that use this creek as a migration pathway.”
The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson
Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard
The Reay Creek Remediation Project is funded through Canada’s Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan (FCSAP). FCSAP provides funding to assess and remediate federal contaminated sites and is coordinated by Environment and Climate Change Canada and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat.
Reay Creek is home to cutthroat trout and salmon. Transport Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada are working to ensure remediation work happens as quickly, efficiently, and sustainably as is possible.
The excavation work will remove approximately 500 cubic metres or 900 tonnes of contaminated sediment from portions of the creek bed located on airport lands.
