ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENTS AND INVESTIGATIONS
Environmental site assessments and investigations are undertaken to determine if contamination is present on your site and if so, to determine the nature and extent of contamination in soil, groundwater and/or air. Environmental investigations are typically conducted in a phased approach to minimize costs.
Under the BC Environmental Management Act and subsequent Contaminated Sites Regulation, private landowners have a responsibility to identify and manage contamination of soil or water (including groundwater) on their land. Environmental standards must also be met on federal land, according to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act requirements.
In order to help landowners meet this responsibility, we provide the following services:
• Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments / Stage 1 Preliminary Site Investigations
• Detailed Site Investigations – groundwater, surface water, soil, sediment and soil vapour
• Site remediation plans and management
• Preparation and submission of documentation required by the Ministry of Environment or other agencies
