Date: July 2004
File Size: 593KB
Description: This Air Handling and Monitoring System Management Plan-Domtar Tank Removal Contract (Plan) has been developed to upgrade the protocol for the management of all on-site systems that could affect the quality of ambient air in off-site areas. This Plan presents an intense monitoring program that will be implemented during the first four weeks following restarting of the Domtar Removal Contract. Following this period, monitoring intensity may decrease dependent of the results measured and subject to NSEL approval. This Plan supplements a broader community-monitoring program, which includes sampling not only at the perimeter of the Site but at the Tar Ponds and urban areas remote from the Site. The community monitoring plan is described in the November 2001 Environmental Management Plan.

Hand-held Air Quality Tests at the Domtar Tank - 2004
Author: MGI Ltd.
Date: June 2004
File Size: 128KB
Description: The Domtar Tank is a large, open-topped tank left behind in the 1950s when the Dominion Tar and Chemical Company abandoned a chemical plant at the northwest corner of the Coke Ovens site. Contractors are demolishing the tank and disposing of its contents. To prevent the release of airborne contaminants, they first enclosed the tank in a temporary building. A large industrial fan draws air from this building through one of two large filters before releasing it to the outdoors. The filters are roughly the size of railway containers. They contain activated charcoal, which removes contaminants from the air passing through them. Technicians carry out regular checks for total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) in the air at several points in the process. The tests are taken with hand-held instruments that give instantaneous readings.

Hand-held Air Quality Tests - 2003
Author: MGI Ltd.
Date: December 2003
File Size: 92KB
Description: In May and June, 2003, contractors removed a sulfur pile from the eastern end of the Coke Ovens site. In July and August, contractors removed a variety of debris from various parts of the site. Because these activities have the potential to generate dust, technicians conducted real-time checks for particulate matter of 10 microns diameter or less (PM-10). They took measurements upwind and downwind of the work site whenever work was underway.

Between June and September, a contractor removed two large stacks from the central area of the Coke Ovens site. In November and December, contractors removed piles of coal and coke from the northern side of the site. In December, 2002, contractors began construction of the containment building for the Domtar Tank removal project, near the northwest corner of the site. Because these activities have the potential to generate dust, technicians conducted real-time checks for particulate matter of 10 microns diameter or less (PM-10). They took measurements upwind and downwind of the work site whenever work was underway.

Follow-up Monitoring Program, Lower Frederick Street, CBRM
Author: Cape Breton Environmental Group
Date: March 2000
File Size: 9.63MB
Description: In April 1998 residents of the Frederick Street area of Whitney Pier, Sydney, noticed a yellowish substance leaching from the bank of the adjacent Cape Breton Development Corporation railbed. In response to those concerns, Environment Canada undertook a sampling program which noted elevated concentrations of arsenic, boron, molybdenum and sulfur. An Intergovernmental Team (IMT) was formed to undertake further investigations. The Cape Breton Environmental Group (CBEG) was contracted by Environment Canada to determine the source and extent of contamination, as well as to identify data which was required to establish potential risk to the extent of the Lower Frederick Street area.
