Churchill Rocket Range Environmental Services

The Churchill Rocket Range is a former rocket launch site located east of the Town of Churchill, Manitoba. KGS Group was retained to provide environmental consulting services for this unique site.

Making use of our team’s diverse capabilities, the scope of work included:

  • an environmental site assessment
  • a non-hazardous and hazardous materials inventory, including hazardous building materials sampling and a rocket debris waste survey
  • preparation of a remediation and hazardous materials management plan
  • preparation of mould and asbestos abatement specifications

Following completion of the initial work, the rocket range was transferred to the Town of Churchill and KGS Group was retained to manage and coordinate activities related to soil remediation and demolition of several buildings and structures at the site. Remedial activities included excavation and disposal of contaminated soils in an onsite constructed land farm as approved by the province.

Successful completion of this project required careful planning due to short field seasons and limited equipment, as well as the ability to adapt to variable conditions encountered in this unique Canadian subarctic environment.
