The McMaster SYP chapter of the CWRA is hosting Roger Santiago to discuss details about the Randle Reef project in Hamilton Harbour.  Located in the southwest corner of Hamilton Habour, the Randle Reef site is approximately 60 hectares (or about 120 football fields) in size. It is the largest PAH-contaminated sediment site on the Canadian Great Lakes. During this webinar, we will learn about the history, design, construction process, dredging process, water quality monitoring, challenges, and more regarding the Randle Reef Project. Followed by a Q&A session with Roger.
