Soil Testing in Owen Sound

City begins core drilling exercise to look at infrastructure, road widening in the future.
(Owen Sound) -
Preliminary work is being done on 8th Street East as Owen Sound weighs its options on improving the infrastructure between 5th Avenue and 9th Avenue East.
Webb says given Owen Sound's variable soils -- it is now routine to do core drilling before going ahead with underground work, so they don't get surprised by what they find beneath a roadway.
One problem now, is the sewers in that section are combined, meaning rainwater needlessly gets treated at the sewage treatment plant, and the retaining wall is showing it's age.

Do you think it's fair for someone to use their high profile -- like Eugene Melnyk -- to find an organ donor?
