After the Port Hope Project is Finished
The primary goal of the Port Hope Project is to return remediated sites to at least their pre-construction state — or better. Remediated properties should be useable for any purpose, from growing vegetables to recreation. Even the proposed long-term waste management site has been identified as an area with potential for redevelopment — including playing fields, gardens, trails and more.
Preferred community end uses for the completed aboveground mound, proposed by a council-appointed citizens’ committee, will be implemented during Phase 3. In Port Hope, passive recreational uses such as walking trails and a lookout on the surface of the mound, surrounded by active recreational elements, are envisioned.

“Although numerous studies have demonstrated that Port Hope has always been a healthy place to live, work and play, the cleanup will give peace of mind, once and for all, to residents and visitors.”
