The Public Advisory Council of the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup plans public presentation on U.S. sediment remediation

Windsor, ON – Join the Public Advisory Council of the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup as they host U.S. colleagues who will provide a presentation on the progress of sediment remediation efforts on the American side of the Detroit River. The upcoming presentation will highlight the projects American partners are tackling to improve sediment quality, which improves overall ecosystem health of the river system. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 from 12:30 to 1:15 pm at the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER) Conference Room 250 at the University of Windsor.

“Our American colleagues are coming to discuss the various sites and Superfund sites they plan to cleanup from Harbourtown upstream to the Gibraltar Canals downstream,” said Tom Henderson, Chair of the Public Advisory Council of the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup. “This is a very exciting time in the Detroit River’s history, to be able to see the contamination from the past be cleaned up, resulting in a cleaner river.”

This presentation is free and the public is invited to attend.  Please RSVP by contacting
