Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) has released the Draft Alberta Risk Management Plan Guide
for contaminated sites and is seeking input from stakeholders, site managers and environmental professionals. Contaminated sites are created by the release of a substance or substances into the environment, and regulatory concerns arise when those substance(s) are capable of causing adverse effects on human health, the environment, safety or property.
The Guide provides information on AEP and Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) contaminated site requirements and provides guidance for defining when risk management would be considered over remediation or in association with remediation to manage risk. The Guide also includes a Risk Management Plan Checklist to support the development of risk management plans for submission to AEP or AER.
The Guide supports provisions outlined in a number of provincial policies and legislation,
including the Alberta Contaminated Sites Policy Framework
and the Alberta Exposure Control Guide
AEP is accepting feedback until August 31, 2016
and are requesting that input only be submitted in the provided Excel spreadsheet
and to attach and submit comments by email to Land.Management@gov.ab.ca.
Please include “Risk Management Plan Guide Feedback” as the subject of any submissions.
