City officials in Saskatoon have confirmed that they have found soil contamination at the Pleasant Hill renewal project. Since April the area has been evacuated to make way for the housing redevelopment. The discovery, according to the same officials, should not impede the project, which is valued at $3.3 million. “Potentially, if there are real environmental problems, it will slow it down,” said Counselor Pat Lorje. The contamination is from heating oil left over from pre-1905s heating systems.
