The pipeline stretches from the barge to the watefront tanks.

CORNWALL, Ontario - Mayor Bob Kilger told city councillors to expect the transport of chemicals from a pair of controversial tanks on the Cornwall waterfront as early as this week.

Kilger said the trucks will likely leave the harbour area and travel along Marlborough Street to Water Street, before heading north on Brookdale Avenue to Highway 401.

The tanks were filled last week with calcium chloride in the first shipment delievered by barge to Cornwall.

Calcium chloride is used a dust suppressor and ice melter.

The city has received an information packet from Transport Canada concerning details of the harbour site, including the much-sought after lease between the federal agency and Trillium Distribution which is operating the tanks.

Talks between the city, Akwesasne and Transport Canada continue regarding divestiture of the property.
