Planning for Restoration
We own and manage two former aggregate sites in the Town of Caledon – Pinchin Pit and Flaherty West Pit, 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. The restoration process will allow us to grade the sites and create an area suitable for tree planting and development of grassland habitat.
Working together with the Region of Peel, we’re undertaking a restoration feasibility study to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing clean excess soil for the restoration for these two properties.
Input from the public, Indigenous communities and our partners will inform how the sites are restored as well as their final uses as conservation areas. Stay tuned for opportunities to become involved.
