Proposal details

The proposal is for a new Environmental Compliance Approval for a waste disposal site (processing) for 2374868 Ontario Inc., located at 6678 Wellington Road 34 in Cambridge, Ontario. The 2.2-hectare site will be used as a hydrovac soil processing facility.

The site receives slurry from hydrovac vehicles from sites in Southern Ontario and dry soil is generated by physical water separation. The site will have a maximum daily receiving rate of 250 tonnes of liquid soil and a maximum total storage capacity of 1,125 tonnes of soil at any one time.

Soil is tested and then largely used for beneficial reuse for closed aggregate pit rehabilitation on the property as it meets Table 1 Background standards. Some soil and aggregate material are recovered for recycling and for beneficial reuse at other appropriate properties. Residual soil which does not meet reuse criteria is transported and disposed of at a permitted off-site treatment or disposal facility.

Separated water is tested and managed by an on-site stormwater management system, and there is a groundwater monitoring program reviewed by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks in place.

Receiving, processing and shipping may take place between 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday. The site also occasionally provides hydrovac services outside typical operating hours (e.g., after hours and weekends).
