Cape Christian clean-up to start next year

Next summer, Qikiqtaaluk Logistics Inc. will start a clean-up at Cape Christian, a derelict radar site about 16 kilometres northeast of Clyde River.

The $11.1 million operation will focus on several dump areas littered with solid waste and barrels. Many of the buildings still on site contain asbestos and are covered with PCB and lead-based paint.

Cape Christian, established by the United States Coast Guard as a long-range navigation site in 1954, was abandoned in 1974.
