Comments Off on Ninth Line Landfill Site/Restoration Project Update
As you may or may not know, United Soils Management’s Ninth Line landfill site is also a restoration project. USM was issued a fill permit as part of the Lee Sand and Gravel Pit Restoration Project. The plan involves using quality fill to fill in the old pit and to restore the Lee Sand & Gravel Pit back to as it was in the 1950’s – farmland with a woodlot.
The MLRA has been working closely with United Soils since the start of the restoration project and Alec Cloke has always been very open with us on an ongoing basis. United Soils has just applied for an amendment to their land fill permit to allow a small number of hydrovac trucks to empty at the site. The MLRA sat down with Alec Cloke to find out more information about this proposal.
Here are his answers to our questions.
The hydrovac industry is 15 years old and growing in leaps and bounds. To date, there are two legal places to unload hydrovacs in the GTA as a result hydrovacs are being emptied everywhere and there are no measures or any policing for testing. United Soils is organizing to cure that.
United’s application is for an amendment to a previously granted license. There will be no additional trucks on Ninth Line. Hydrovacs will be included in the approved number of trucks coming to that location.
There will be one hydrovac company allowed to come to United. The hydrovac company owned by Powell contracting operating within Stouffville will be responsible for policing over the protocol of all materials coming to the site. That is to say, that more than one hydrovac company may be coming to the site, but Powell contracting will be responsible for all of it.
The testing criteria for hydrovac trucks is equal to the protocol which already exists. The difference is that the material will be tested in a separate quadrant of our property. If the testing fails, the material will be removed.
If contaminated material comes to the site, it will not go further from where it was originally delivered and immediately removed at the shippers expense.
There’s a protocol agreement that administered by United soils and monitored by the town.
The first truck allowed on the site cannot be earlier than 7am and the last truck allowed on the premises cannot be after 6pm.
It’s easy for United Soils to adhere to that.
One must not forget that there’s a gravel pit working at the same location where there are no restrictions for early morning entry.
That operation closes at 4pm.
There are no additional risks. The testing criteria is the same.
Something that the public should understand is that the hydrovac and small quantity portion of the business is minor compared to what already exists. United is not going to put its current operation in jeopardy for the sake of hydrovacs.
It’s conducted by Golder and Associates. All reports are sent directly to the Town, so as in any other report which is public can be received by requesting the Town for it.
The Town has access to all information.
The maximum number of trucks which is approved to date is 600 but United is doing nowhere near that.
It is not coming from USM if it is before 7am on weekdays.
It’s important to note that the water on United’s property is NOT ground water, but captured storm water.
500,000 gallons per month are what is used for dust control on the site.
United has put up $333,000.00 cash securities to date.
This will grow over the next 3 years to one million dollars cash securities.
The way that the agreement is structured with the town is that it gets revisited annually in case there are deletions or additions in the agreement.
The MLRA would like to thank Alec Cloke for keeping our community updated on the project.

Comments Off on Thank You Sponsors and Volunteers! Spring Clean Event was a BIG Success
The community cleanup was a huge success this year.
We want to thank Councillor Maurice Smith for helping to organize this year’s event and chairing the organizing committee.
Over 100 volunteers of all ages participated.
There were 6 different crews covering all around the lake and we also had the marine unit, on the water, with Kevin and Tyler doing the lake shore line.
Everyone started the day with coffee, hot chocolate & Tim bits donated by Tim Hortons.
All the kids wore protective bright fluorescent vests provided by the town of Whitchurch – Stouffville, who also made sure we all had gloves, garbage bags and the huge 40 yard garbage bin.
The York Regional Police escorted the 3 crew wagons with their new ATV’s.
Cedar Beach Resort provided their big parking lot again this year, as our base, as well as the bathrooms, picnic tables, tractors and wagons, garbage bins and a 20 yard recycling bin.
Everyone collected garbage around the area for over two hours.
It is unbelievable but they filled the entire 40 yard bin and also the 20 yard recycling bin.
Ten tires were also collected and fifteen bikes were donated to Africycle.
At the same time the United Soils street sweeper covered many of our local streets picking up the sand from this winter.
Everyone had a healthy hot lunch courtesy of United Soils & Tiny Seedlings – corn on the cob and chili served out of their events trailer.
Donnlyn Home Improvements joined this year and handed out water and treats for the kids along the routes and at lunch.
Charlinda’s Belgian Chocolates gave away chocolate treats with lunch and of course George at the variety store gave all the kids a free ice cream cone for participating.
York Regional Police set up a display and everyone got to check out the ATV’s and discuss road safety.
The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority set up a large display.
Christa Sharp and Brian Kemp of the LSRCA had an education area set up and discussed the living organisms with water right out of the lake. It was interactive for all the participants.
Small seedling trees – pines, cedars and spruce, were also given out to the participants to take home and plant.
Roger Carlsen, a new resident to the lake, and also a professional photographer, documented the entire event. (see attached photos)
Tents, music, power, & tables were provided again this year by Most Excellent Productions.
Earth Day 2016 is one that our entire community can be proud of.
Thank you to all the sponsors and volunteers for making our lake a better place to live.
LOOKING FORWARD TO 2017!
