Environmental Risk Assessment

While physical remediation continues to play an important role in site clean-up, there are numerous sites and instances where removing contamination is not possible or practical. What if contamination is located deep below the surface or below a building? Can people or ecosystems be exposed to it? If yes, then are the exposure levels at levels of concern? Can contaminants be safely managed on-site? Trillium Environmental can answer these questions formally as part of an environmental risk assessment. These are also known as “human health and ecological risk assessments” or “remediation to risk-based standards”.
Cleanup legislation in British Columbia enables use of risk assessment to remediate sites and to support regulatory closure. Risk assessment can be used on its own or in conjunction with physical remediation, depending on the site. Trillium Environmental prepares screening-level or detailed risk assessments based on clients current and future site plans. The results are then used to design risk management solutions to ensure risks remain acceptable.
Meeting risk assessment technical and regulatory requirements is a multi-disciplinary exercise which relies on teams with a range of expertise. Trillium Environmental has a proven record of overseeing and/or mentoring project teams to achieve risk-based remediation in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Soil Relocation

Moving soil to or from Vancouver Island? It is important to know that as of March 1, 2023 the rules for soil relocation in B.C. have changed.

Soil relocation requirements were enacted to:

  • Increase soil reuse
  • Reduce non-waste soil disposal at landfills
  • Enable tracking of soil relocation in B.C.

If certain commercial or industrial uses described in Schedule 2 of the B.C. Contaminated Sites Regulation have taken place at the source site, then the new soil relocation process must be followed. A Qualified Professional (QP) should be retained to conduct a records review to help identify past or present activities of concern.

Although some sites are exempt from this process, many site owners/operators have the duty to engage a QP to conduct appropriate inquiries, soil testing, and to notify the Ministry of Environment and Climate Changes Strategy at least one week prior to moving soil.
