3.2 The MOE acknowledges that Dofasco is reducing the loadings of substances of concern to receiving waters. In this regard, Dofasco and the MOE will use all reasonable efforts to initiate a pilot program which will, among other initiatives, address upstream effluent monitoring on Dofasco's property and develop an appropriate process to enable Dofasco to make operating modifications within the framework of Ontario Regulation 214/95. This program is targeted to be completed by the end of June, 1998.
3.3 Dofasco, with the appropriate support of EC and the MOE as set out in their respective response documents to the Hamilton Harbour Remedial Action Plan ("RAP") will use all reasonable efforts to maintain their participation in and provide resources to the RAP, with a commitment to work with stakeholders to remove Hamilton Harbour as an "Area of Concern" on the Great Lakes.
3.4 Dofasco, EC and the MOE will use all reasonable efforts to address the contaminated sediments in its boat slip. Such efforts will include defining the extent of contamination, assessing the severity of contamination and its impacts, assessment of remediation options and the development and implementation of a plan of action for remediation consistent with the relevant recommendations of the Hamilton Harbour RAP.
3.5 Dofasco will use all reasonable efforts, including effective business planning, goal setting, and implementation of appropriate control measures to reduce incidence of accidental releases into water. In this regard, Dofasco has implemented containment and control systems throughout its facility, and will continue to implement such systems, including installation of best available technologies as appropriate.
