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

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.
