Challenge

Treat and stabilize tar ponds soil and sediment preparing the site for community use

The Tar Ponds were filled with waste from a steel mill and coke oven, impacting the tidal estuary with impacted sediments and sludge. The governments of Canada and Nova Scotia announced a plan to clean up the site and establish Open Hearth Park, a community gathering place.   

ENTACT played a key role on the project team, providing solidification/stabilization services, laying the foundation for this valuable community project.  

ENTACT Solution

ENTACT developed solidification and stabilization mix designs in our treatability lab, and a successful field pilot program confirmed the recommended formula.
