Contaminated Sites

In Quebec, the Environment Quality Act specifies provisions regarding the management of contaminated properties based on the risk assessment approach. By limiting the decontamination work to the areas presenting a risk to human health or the environment, this approach often leads to the re-use of contaminated sites which, due to prohibitive costs, may not otherwise be remediated. Similar legislation exists in other provinces and states around the world.

Sanexen’s Risk Assessment team works in conjunction with its Site Remediation team to offer integrated solutions for the management of contaminated sites, from the initial assessment of the site (Phase I) to its final remediation.
