Durham Workforce Authority – Employer Survey

The Durham Workforce Authority (DWA) has partnered with the Region of Durham, Economic Development and Durham College to conduct an Employer Survey in North Durham.

This Employer Survey will be used to measure the demand for workers, as well as understanding what education, training, and skills are needed.

Employers are asked questions relating to the size of their workforce; future plans to expand or downsize, the challenges employers face when recruiting new employees; the availability of skilled workers in their area and the type of skills that they think are needed in their workforce.

The Employer Survey is available online at:
http://fluidsurveys.com/s/northdurhamemployers/

Please take a moment to complete this important survey. We need to compile data in order to assist with our skills shortages in North Durham.  You may also have a representative from the Durham Workforce Authority visit your place of business in the coming weeks as well!

GREENBANK AIRPORT SITE REMEDIATION

The Township has given conditional approval to allow limited site alteration at the Greenbank Airport Site for the purpose of permitting the owner to conduct remediation at the Site to address the contaminated and/or prohibited fill deposited in contravention of the Site Alteration Agreement with the owner and the Site Alteration By-law.  The Township's consultant, Golder Associates Ltd.  has identified prohibited materials and contaminants of concern in the stockpiled fill materials at concentrations that are above the applicable soil criteria. The remediation plan targets 31 separate locations in the stockpile. At one location that is difficult to access, the owner intends to inject amendments into the soil to attempt to degrade the contaminants. At the remaining 30 locations, excavation will be used to remove the soil at each location where contamination was previously found. Excavated soil will be placed in temporary stockpiles and testing of each stockpile will be completed to determine whether it can be either used as backfill or removed from the Site to an appropriate disposal facility. At each of the remediation locations, soil testing will be conducted by a Qualified Person to confirm that all contaminated fill has been removed. The Township has also retained Golder to conduct full monitoring of the remediation activities.  The Township continues to prohibit any new fill from being brought on to the Site and intends to conduct further independent testing to verify that full remediation has been achieved in accordance with the conditional approval given.

For particulars of the conditional approval given the following documents can be accessed:

1.  Conditional Approval Letter from Loopstra Nixon LLP to Miller Thomson LLP dated July 21, 2015

2.   Remediation Plan by D.L.Services Inc. dated June 8, 2015 as clarified on June 29, 2015; and

3.   Comments by Golder Associates Ltd. Dated July 8, 2015.
