Discussing Excess Soil Session, November 26

Dealing with excess soil is a significant challenge for Ontario.  Millions of dollars in development and the safety of our environment are at stake - not to mention thousands of jobs at a range of cleantech, consulting, construction, remediation firms and others.
To address this issue – and to share information among soil and Brownfields practitioners – the Ontario Environment Industry Association (ONEIA) is pleased to present our second annual discussion of excess soils on November 26.
