Spill Assessment

A Schneider Foods transport truck (owned by Maple Leaf Foods Inc.) was involved in a collision while enroute to Brantford, Ontario. The transport truck was struck by a vehicle on the passenger side and the fuel tank was ruptured. As a result of the ruptured fuel tank, an estimated 620 litres of diesel fuel was spilled onto the asphalt and concrete curb spillway along the highway.

Soil Verification Sampling

In September 2013, a transport truck owned by a USA-based hauling company rolled-over at an intersection outside of Fort Erie, Ontario. As a result of the truck roll-over, approximately 17,000-liters of diesel fuel was released to the asphalt road surface. During the release, a significant quantity of diesel fuel entered a catch basin at the intersection, which discharged to Frenchman’s Creek.

TRICAR – 152 McDonell Brownfield Redevelopment

When XCG arrived on site to complete a Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) at 152 Macdonell in late 2011, it was a vacant lot, zoned for commercial use. The property however had a history of uses including tire service/vulcanizing and repair shop (1930s to the early/mid- 1960s), a battery sales and service company (1930s to 1940s), and more recently an office building with a daycare. The Phase One ESA, and review of previous investigations identified several Areas of Potential Environmental Concern (APEC`s) including land uses on neighbouring properties and underground storage tanks on 152 Macdonell itself.
