Monitoring Wells Clarification

The Town of Carleton Place conducts an ongoing groundwater monitoring program to assess the effectiveness of the groundwater treatment system that was installed in 2016 on the Town’s Market Square property. The ongoing monitoring program is a key component of the Town’s initiative to treat the contaminated groundwater and this approach was supported by the Ontario Ministry of Environment. The installation of the new monitoring wells along the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) is actually the replacement of two (2) wells that had been damaged and one (1) new well. The installation of these wells are recommended by the consultant working on the file to ensure that the Town’s monitoring program is as effective as possible.
