8 Wing Environment’s Contaminated Sites Manager, Mr. Chris McRae, is shown on the left with Defence Construction Canada’s Summer Student, Ms. Claire Woodfield (Honours Bachelor of Engineering (Environmental), Carleton University) on the right, conducting surface water quality sampling along the flooded Bay of Quinte shoreline on 8 Wing/CFB Trenton’s Federal Lands. DND/8 Wing Environmental Management provides contaminated sites management under the Government of Canada’s Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan. Demonstrations of scientific field sampling techniques and methodologies, while using proper personal protective equipment, are great learning experiences for field scientists and engineers. The results of the water samples will help us to better understand the general chemistry and composition of our shoreline and waters. For more information and to inquire about contaminated sites management, please contact +8 Wing Environment.
