Port Hope Area

The Port Hope area contains approx. 1.2 million cubic metres of Canada’s historic LLRW. The LLRW dates back to the 1930s when radium was extracted from pitchblende ores at a refinery in the municipality, for medical and industrial applications. The LLRW is primarily soil contaminated with early waste material from the refinery. Some remains in situ, awaiting further remediation, the remainder is stored in several interim storage locations in the area, pending a long-term management solution.
