Flooding

Environmental Contamination Assessment

  • MACA hired a consultant to investigate areas suspected of potential contamination caused by the flooding in Fort Simpson and Jean Marie River.
  • Staff has shared the findings of this investigation with affected property owners.
  • MACA hired a consultant to remediate (remove) contaminated soil from areas where concentrations of hydrocarbons in soil samples were above Territorial guidelines and anticipates this work will start in sometime in late September or early October 2021.
