Supporting a Subway Extension to Serve Toronto’s Growth

Many cities worldwide are looking for ways to meet their sustainability and climate change goals; Providing reliable, green transportation is a big part of their strategy. This is particularly the case in Toronto, the fastest-growing city in North America. With an exponentially growing population, there is an urgent need for better ways to travel that do not put pressure on the area’s roadways. This has meant prioritizing the expansion of the area’s public transit system, particularly its subway.

PFAS Remediation at Australian Site Delivers Rapid Results for Client, Community and Environment

Hillary Johnston

Many industrial sites around the world have used fire-fighting foams and other materials containing the class of chemicals known as PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). PFAS were developed more than 50 years ago and became popular as they can impart a range of useful properties to products, such as the ability to repel water and oil, and resist chemicals. Over time, however, PFAS were found to accumulate in the bodies of living organisms, including humans, potentially causing unintended environmental or human health impacts. What’s more, some PFAS are highly leachable, travel significant distances and persist within source areas decades after being released. Unlike many other contaminants, PFAS are difficult to destroy and won’t naturally degrade, which makes remediating PFAS contamination challenging.

City centers are increasingly popular places to live, with 68% of the world’s population projected to live in urban areas by 2050 according to the United Nation’s 2018 Revision of World Urbanization Prospects. People are drawn to the prospect of a quick commute to work, plus the lure of living in a vibrant place with plenty of attractions in a “walkable” environment. Many people are also drawn to the historic character of downtown cores, driving a need to preserve that architectural heritage.
