Contaminated Sites

Environmental site assessments and investigations are undertaken to address the question if contamination is present on your site and if so, to determine the nature and extent of contaminants 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, property owners have a responsibility to identify and manage contamination of soil or water (including groundwater) on their land.

In order to help landowners meet this responsibility, we provide the following services:

  • Phase 1 and 2 Environmental Site Assessments / Stage 1 and 2 Preliminary Site Investigations
  • Detailed Site Investigations – groundwater, surface water, soil, sediment and soil vapour
  • Site remediation plans
  • Preparation and submission of documentation required by the Ministry of Environment or other agencies.
