Environmental
Compliance

Identify, manage, and mitigate risk to your property.

Whether you need services for processing a new property acquisition, financing or managing occupational health or due diligence, ECOH’s team of professional engineers and geoscientists uphold the highest standards to ensure full compliance with all relevant legislation and regulations.

Services Include

ECOH conducts Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) for due diligence or regulatory purposes, including property transactions or Record of Site Conditions. Phase I ESAs are non-intrusive investigations that include:

  • Historical record reviews
  • Site inspections
  • Interviews
  • Evaluation and assessment of environmental liabilities

PHASE II ESAs are intrusive investigations that can include:

  • Soil assessments
  • Groundwater surveys to assess potential contamination

Like the ESA, an Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) may be necessary for due diligence and regulatory purposes.Environmental Risk Assessments (ERAs) usually follow an ESA when a contaminant is identified, and remediation is not a viable option from a technical or financial perspective.

ECOH offers a scientific process that describes and estimates the environmental effects or probability of adverse health conditions from exposure to specific environmental contaminants.

Soil and Groundwater Remediation

Soil and/or groundwater contamination can be a complex problem requiring expert oversight. ECOH’s experienced team offers a simple process and customized plan to address the contamination and re-establish the property to acceptable provincial and federal standards.

As soon as your ESAs, ERAs, and/or remediation is complete, ECOH’s experts (Qualified Persons, QPs) can provide additional support to clients by filing a Record of Site Condition (RSC) with the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP).
