Pre-site assessments pertain to all private agricultural lands in Alberta, B.C. and Saskatchewan such as pasture, stubble and summer fallow fields. This assessment is used to document the condition of the site prior to construction or development.
The importance of having a Tansley Associates pre-site assessment is multi-dimensional. First, Tansley Associates provides the practical advantage of digital pictures taken before during and after construction of the site. Second, with the revised reclamation guidelines in effect, a Tansley Associates pre-site assessment on file will reduce the possibility of having an audit on the site. Finally, potential liabilities associated with the site prior to construction will be identified and documented, promoting sound decision-making during construction.
Omitting the pre-site assessment in the reclamation application can delay reclamation certification, extend landowner payments, and ultimately create extraneous future costs. A Tansley Associates pre-site assessment can not an prevent these problems and more than offset its minimal associated cost.
Environmental Field Reports (EFR)
Environmental field reports (EFR) pertain to pre-site assessments required by Alberta Sustainable Resource Development (SRD) for areas that are located in crown boreal forest. Tansley Associates' EFR meets and exceeds the criteria laid out by SRD for any development in these areas. The EFR is more comprehensive than what is required by the Saskatchewan Industry Resources (SIR), and is important to have completed by professionals. Tansley Associates ensures full compliance to guarantee your project is not delayed unnecessarily.
