Rob Willis and Tony Walker, with support from additional members of the Dillon team, published an article in Soil and Sediment Contamination: An International Journal. The article, “Ecological Risk Assessment of Sediments in Sydney Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada” summarizes the ecological risk assessment (ERA) we completed in support of a harbour divestiture program. Contamination within Sydney Harbour sediments was evaluated using a multiple lines of evidence ERA approach. The ERA determined that current sediment conditions exhibit a mostly low probability of adverse effects. To read the full article, click here.
