Planning for Restoration
We own and manage two former aggregate sites in the Town of Caledon – Pinchin Pit and Flaherty West Pit (previously referred to as the Capstone parcel), which is a part of Charles Sauriol Conservation Area. These properties are not currently open to the public. Our goal is to restore these properties and transform them into future Credit Valley Parks.
We’re undertaking a Restoration Feasibility Study together with the Region of Peel to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing excess soil for the restoration for these two properties.
We’re in the early phases of developing the study. Check back for updates on this project.
