Subject: [CPEO-MEF] GLOBAL: Cartwright, Labrador, Canada
DFO investigates soil contamination in Cartwright

Cartwright, Labrador has a history as a transportation hub for the south coast. The community of less than 600 people was once a fur-trading center and later hosted the American military as well as a Ministry of Transportation radar station. The legacy of its guests has left the community with some contamination that DFO (The Department of Fisheries and Oceans) is in the process of investigating.


The work on the old fuel line began last year after the Coast Guard, who operate out of Cartwright, requested that the line, which leads from the wharf to the old Ministry of Transportation transmission station, be removed.
