Report calls for urgency to address contaminated river sediments

Contaminated sediments limit the ecological recovery of the Detroit and Rouge River ecosystems, says a report released Tuesday by the State of the Strait Conference steering committee.

On the U.S. side of the Detroit River, up to 5.1 million cubic metres of contaminated sediments have been targeted for remediation by state and federal governments. No additional sediment remediation is required on the Canadian side.
