Auditing, Regulatory Agencies
| || |
All aspects of the project are defined and managed, including project resources (human and capital), subcontractors, health and safety and risk management. Our
team is also experienced in auditing projects, identifying potential risks and implementing mitigation measures.
Pre-disturbance Assessments (PDA)
Inventories of site conditions are prepared to establish a baseline and provide targets for reclamation. Inventory items include Soil and Vegetation; Wildlife; Landscape;
Interests of surface rights holders; and Applicable federal and provincial regulations.
Well Site Reclamation
Cost-effective reclamation programs are designed to restore the site to conditions similar to pre disturbance or as specified by Government regulations. Our team works
with clients from pre development stages through to decommissioning to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and reduce reclamation costs.
Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA)
Comprehensive EIAs are prepared that capture baseline conditions and predict potential consequences of development. We work with our clients and regulatory agencies
in developing mitigation measures to reduce environmental and social impacts.
Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) (Phase I & II)
Phase I ESAs identify potential sources of environmental risk or liability and establish a framework for subsequent investigations. Information on assessments can
be obtained via desktop file reviews, interviews and/or site visits. No physical sampling is required during the Phase I ESA. In Alberta, a reclamation certificate
will not be processed without a Phase I ESA.If contamination is suspected at a site, a Phase II ESA may be required to determine if contamination is present.
Stakeholder Engagement and Consultation
Key stakeholders are mapped and proper stakeholder engagements and consultations are conducted to avoid project delays. We work with our clients in managing their
commitment to stakeholders and fostering relationships.
Environmental Systems Auditing (ISO 14001)
Environmental auditing has become a regular part of corporate environmental management practices, to minimize corporate risk and liability.
Environmental auditing can aid an organization in measuring environmental performance. Our team assists organizations in the following areas:
Regulatory Permitting/Compliance Management
- Reviewing current operations and practices objectively from an environmental perspective
- Identifying potential hazardous or non-complaince situations before they become problems
- Evaluating risk and liablilty associated with ongoing operations and facilities
- Implementing management systems
- Monitoring to ensure effective management of environmental aspects
Clients are supported in obtaining various regulatory permits and licenses that are necessary for the project to take place. The AB EnviroSolutions team has years of
experience with regulation interpretation and on-site auditing to ensure companies are maintaining regulatory compliance.
Environment Protection Plans (EPP)
Conceptual environmental protection measures are developed that limit environmental disturbance associated with projects. Developed measures are implemented during
project planning, construction, operation, decommissioning and reclamation. EPPs also support the protection of social aspects of the project.
Wildlife Protection Plans
Wildlife protection plans are developed to minimize the effects of projects on wildlife, while facilitating industrial development in designated sensitive areas. We
consult with stakeholders (developers and regulators) to ensure the designed plans are effectively implemented for new development.
Ongoing routine monitoring is provided as required by project approval conditions. Various regulatory jurisdictions require an "environmental monitor" be present
to ensure that project conditions are met and environmental impacts are minimized.
In addition to the Water Act, Alberta is in the process of implementing a new wetland policy which will come into effect in 2009. The new policy will ask
development projects that might result in the loss or degradation of a wetland to mitigate for said losses. Using the Wetland Mitigation Decision Framework (WMDF)
as a guide, our team of wetland scientists will help you determine the best way to mange impacts to those wetlands.
Experienced and professional formatting and technical English reviews are applied to our documentation. AB EnviroSolutions is conscious of the affects of a
polished product and strives to meet and exceed client expectations and standards.
