Environmental Services liaises with the B.C. Ministry of Environment  for contaminated sites assessments. For more information on Site Profiles please read:

Erosion and Sediment Control

The City has implemented policies to prevent silt-laden runoff in construction sites from entering the downstream drainage system and ending up in creeks and lakes.

It is a mandatory requirement that all construction projects within the City implement Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) measures. These measures must remain in place until 95% of the construction work is completed.
