Safe Uranium Radioactivity Levels

Capital & Infrastructure is pleased to inform community members that a uranium radioactivity test was performed by a professional geotechnical firm at the Busteed Addition-to-Reserve as a preventive measure for future developments. The results received in June 2021 concluded that the area is safe for residential uses. The values obtained were so low that they were very close to the laboratory’s detection limit. The laboratory has confirmed that we “should not be worried about any unusual radioactivity in the area”.
