As outlined in the agreement, a number of studies and analyses will be completed to determine the nature and extent of contamination, investigate potential risks to human health and the environment, and decide how to best manage any risk that is deemed unacceptable.

  • Can I play on the beaches?
  • Can I swim in the water?
