The Impacted Sites Management Section (ISMS) are involved with the management of impacted sites, to ensure that private and government owned properties are managed in accordance with the provincial “Guidance Document for the Management of Impacted Sites”. Responsibilities include the following:
Representatives of the ISMS manage the environmental site assessment and remediation of provincially-owned impacted sites, including former military sites, waste disposal sites, and other provincially-owned properties. Management is in accordance with provincial and federal environmental requirements, including the provincial “Guidance Document for the Management of Impacted Sites”. The ISMS retain environmental consultants to complete the environmental site assessment work required to delineate impacts on a given site. Representatives of the ISMS coordinate with the environmental consultants to achieve site remediation to an acceptable level.
The Impacted Sites Management Section conducts searches of Department files for property owners and purchasers and their environmental consultants, lawyers, and realtors. This is often conducted as part of a property transfer.
Representatives of the ISMS complete regulatory review of impacted sites in the province, including both private and provincially-owned sites, to ensure that they have been managed in accordance with the “Guidance Document for the Management of Impacted Sites.” Environmental site assessment and remediation is completed at the site by a Site Professional, as outlined in the provincial guidance and upon completion of the site assessment/remediation work, summary reports and a Record of Site Condition are submitted for regulatory closure. The ISMS completes a detailed regulatory review. Once the ISMS are satisfied that the site has been managed in accordance with the guidance, and that the stated level of contamination remaining on the subject property does not pose an unacceptable risk to human health or to the environment, an ISMS representative will sign the Record of Site Condition.
The ISMS may provide technical assistance and advice to other government organizations and departments, industry, environmental consultants, site owners and others with an interest in an impacted site, with respect to our guidance and acceptable environmental site management practices.
