South Niagara Hospital Site Update
In preparation for the new South Niagara Hospital, Niagara Health recently undertook a successful Natural Heritage Assessment on the site.  The assessment allows for the approval of renewable energy development on the site by the Ontario Government.

Last week, boreholes were constructed as part of a geotechnical and hydrogeological study of the site. The boreholes will provide insight into the water, gases and temperature measurement on the site or any underground storage of unwanted substances.

Be sure to follow Niagara Health on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the progress of the South Niagara Hospital Site.
