The Proposed Project

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project which involves the maintenance and rehabilitation for the ditches in the northern and southern sectors of DRDC -Valcartier, which will include the re-profiling and removal of sediments from the bottom of the ditches in order to restore their original profile.
