Hamilton Harbour, a deep water port which supports the largest iron and steel industrial complex in Canada, receives runoff and waste effluent from its western rural area as well as the eastern urbanized region. A remedial action plan (RAP) team with representatives from Ontario’s Ministries of the Environment, Natural Resources, and Agriculture and Food, Environment Canada, Royal Botanical Gardens and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans was formed in May 1986 to identify sources of pollution and steps and timetables in the remediation process, and to work closely with the community-wide stakeholder groups in developing and implementing the remedial action plan.
