Bore testing field work for Cleantech Commons Servicing
Limited field work using a hand-held probing device will be conducted to determine the most environmentally-friendly way to run water services from existing infrastructure at the DNA building to the Cleantech Commons research park. This work will evaluate the depth of bedrock and is being conducted in accordance with provincial guidelines. The Otonabee Region Conservation Authority has endorsed the approach. Bore testing at this time of the year involves minimal disturbance and is the least intrusive way to test as frost remains in the ground. The planned watermain will be below and within existing buffers and natural features. The previously postponed probing has been rescheduled the week of March 6, weather dependent.
