The city of Hamilton will have to cough up more than 2 million dollars for a chemical clean up at the airport.
Residents received an update on a pollution study by government agencies yesterday.
They were told the province also expects Hamilton to study the risk posed by P-FOS, the old firefighting foam used at the former training faciltiy -- to the environment as well as human health.
That is unless the federal government decides to contribute.
The city and airport operator Tradeport have already split the 80 thousand dollar cost of studying the extent of contamination at the airport’s old fire training area.
Test results are due for submission to the city and MOE in July.
