Aug. 16-26: Environmental Samples to Be Collected in Iqaluit


The Department of Environment will be collecting soil and water samples in the lower base area of Iqaluit from Aug. 16-26, 2016. This ongoing program across the territory is intended to check for possible historical contamination. The work involves digging 1.5 to 2-metre deep holes, which will be refilled each day to reduce risks of accident.
