A 12-acre parcel of land on the Central Experimental Farm has been contaminated by road salt from nearby Carling Avenue and cannot be used for research, the Citizen has learned.

The contaminated land is located directly across from The Ottawa Hospital and comprises about one-fifth of the hospital’s preferred building site for a new Civic campus.
