The mayor of St-André d’Argenteuil hopes the Québec government will be more attentive when it comes to preventing contaminated soil from being dumped on local properties.

Mayor Marc-Olivier Labelle said contaminated soil was dumped on a building lot by Route 344 near the St-Placide boundary.

The soil, which was dumped in the fall of 2018, is not contaminated enough to prevent the owner from building a house on the property.
