About the Proposal

Nova Scotia Lands Inc. is proposing the remediation and restoration of Boat Harbour and nearby lands, located next to Pictou Landing First Nation and five kilometres east of Pictou, Nova Scotia. In 1967, the provincial government constructed the Boat Harbour Effluent Treatment Facility to treat effluent from industrial sources and in the process, reconstructed a natural tidal estuary into a closed effluent stabilization basin. The Government of Nova Scotia plans on closing the facility and as part of the remediation and restoration work, hazardous waste-bearing sediment from the facility would be removed and stored on-site in an existing hazardous waste landfill.
