With over thirty years of remediation under its belt, the Hamilton Harbour Remedial Action Plan (HHRAP) and partners regularly review the status of the environmental issues that the Harbour faces and provide status updates using the latest knowledge. Areas of Concern are scientifically evaluated against a list of 14 standardized issues. In the 1980s, Hamilton Harbour was assessed as impaired for 11 of those 14. To learn more about the issues, see our latest fact sheets here.
Remedial Action Plans develop “delisting criteria” as a measure of what remediation looks like when it is complete and are established in consultation with the local community. Previously, the Hamilton Harbour Remedial Action Plan hosted the Public Forum to seek input on proposed criteria changes and to provide updates to the public. We have moved to an online format. Public feedback is considered in the updates and/or used to provide further clarification on the information provided. Your participation and continued support is key to return Hamilton Harbour to the vibrant centerpiece of our community! Stay tuned for more updates.
