Cheam Industrial Lands Reclamation Frequently Asked Questions

Below we’ve included frequently asked questions and an example of the future site end-use. We invite you to call or email us if you need more information.

Once the site has been remediated, it will be a mix of light industrial space and green
space with a trail system for our members and community to use. The light industrial space
will provide economic benefits to our community long-term, and the green space will be
designed to provide our community with leisure and recreation space for future generations
to enjoy.

Yes! The Gravel Fill Cell Reclamation Project is being held to the highest environmental standards. Since CEI has oversight of this project from the very beginning we can ensure every step is safe not only for our community today, but also for future generations.

This work includes:

  • A robust environmental assessment.
  • Installing a state-of-the-art liner system that creates a barrier system between the environment and materials that will fill the cells.
  • Creating a Materials Acceptance Plan that limits the types of materials that will be used to fill the cells to those that will not create harmful decomposition.
    – Clean shredded C&D material only
    – Remediated and clean soils
  • Sustained environmental monitoring throughout the lifespan of the project.

The Gravel Fill Cell Reclamation Project is not a landfill. The first step to creating green, usable recreation and future development space is to fill the current gravel cells with nonhazardous construction waste. The cells will first be lined with state-of-the-art liners that create a solid barrier between the construction materials and the environment and once filled they will be capped and ready to be turned into green spaces and development land.
Filling the gravel cells with non-hazardous materials is the fastest way to reach the ultimate goal of reclaiming this land for community use. While the gravel cells are being filled, they will also be generating revenue for Cheam, which will be reinvested in priority projects for our Nation.

Cheam personnel and equipment will be utilized where possible to support the construction effort. Outside of general labour, this can include excavators, compacting equipment, and even dozers and their respective operators. Also directly associated with the construction, our construction management partner could also develop an equipment operating training program to further boost Cheam First Nations’ skills and capacities.
Should there be interest outside of the physical construction, there will be options for training with respect to surveying, quality inspections, contract administration, scheduling and project management. Our construction management partner is more than willing to work with Cheam to facilitate and promote this kind of engagement.
