Tony Walker and Andrew Thalheimer Published in Remediation Journal

Tony Walker and Andrew Thalheimer of Dillon, along with Devin MacAskill (Cape Breton Regional Municipality) and Lanying Zhao (Nova Scotia Environment), co-wrote an article published in Remediation Journal, Volume 27, Issue 4. The article, “Contaminant mass flux and forensic assessment of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: Tools to inform remediation decision making at a contaminated site in Canada” details the remediation decision making process used to evaluate the potential impacts of the Sydney Tar Ponds and Coke Ovens clean up project on Sydney Harbour.  

The paper is based on Dillon’s work associated with the environmental effects monitoring program. As part of the project, Dillon was effectively able to use a scientific-based approach to demonstrate that the remediation was not causing an adverse effect to the harbour.
