The main objective of the Environmental Site Assessment Phase II is to confirm the absence or presence of environmental impacts in soil and groundwater associated with actual or potential sources of contamination of soil and groundwater suspected or identified during a previous Phase I Environmental Assessment.
To determine the environmental quality of a site, soil, and sometimes water are collected for analysis. The results of laboratory analysis of soils testing are generally compared to the generic criteria of Policy Protection and Contaminated Sites Rehabilitation Policy (1999, revised in 2001) of the Ministry of Sustainable Development, the Environment and Parks (MDDELCC) and / or standards for wastewater discharges into municipal sewer systems.
Following the analysis of samples and receipt of analytical laboratory results and their comparison with the criteria, our team of specialists will be able to determine the environmental quality of a site (or part thereof), and if applicable, the extent and severity of the contamination of soil and groundwater. The quantities of manageable contamination based on established criteria and standards can also be estimated.
To confirm the absence or presence of soil contamination, the following steps are taken:
