The testing was undertaken to identify possible trichloroethylene (TCE) exposure related to the former Outboard Marine Corporation (OMC) of Canada site on Monaghan Road and vapour intrusion into homes on Romaine Street and Brioux Avenue.

Dr. Rosana Pellizzari, Medical Officer of Health, Peterborough County-City Health Unit (PCCHU) sponsored a meeting on June 26, 2012 at the Peterborough Canoe Museum to discuss results of the work.  David McRobert, a local environmental lawyer has agreed to speak to the work he conducted for his cancelled presentation to the June 26th PCCHU session.
