The City of Edmonton replaced a boardwalk over an oxbow of Whitemud Creek. For the project, Associated Environmental completed applications for the regulatory approvals, and sought municipal regulation clearances under the North Saskatchewan River Valley Redevelopment Plan and the City of Edmonton Corporate Tree Management Policy. The 40 m long boardwalk includes nature signs, a scenic path, and separate pedestrian and bike lanes.
Total E&P Canada Ltd.'s Joslyn North Mine project required re-alignment of the existing access road. Associated Environmental provided regulatory advice and technical guidance to the construction and design team including regulatory approval applications and technical guidance for construction crews, a Wildlife Mitigation Plan, and recommendations for environmental mitigation measures.
Associated led the delivery of a Long-Term Monitoring Plan for six run-of-river hydroelectric facilities located in the Harrison and Stave watersheds. As specified in the facilities’ Conditional Water Licence Authorizations and under the Fisheries Act, implementation of the Long-Term Monitoring Plan is required for the first 5 years of operation, followed by continued data analysis.
Associated Environmental completed an environmental assessment of the sewage infiltration pit in Ross River, YT. The project was conducted in preparation for decommissioning of the pit, which is being replaced with a new wastewater facility.
Navigating the challenges of environmental permits and authorizations is one of the most important ways that Associated Environmental assists our clients to complete their projects in a timely, cost-effective, and environmentally responsible manner. Our combination of strong regulatory knowledge, practical experience, and relationships with government staff enables us to provide sound advice and minimize delays. Associated’s regulatory expertise includes federal (e.g. Fisheries Act, Species at Risk Act, Canadian Environmental Assessment Act), provincial (e.g. water, waste discharge and contaminated sites regulations), and local (e.g. riparian set-back) statutes. We also assist clients to develop regulatory compliance programs for specific construction projects or as part of a comprehensive Environmental Management System.
