After severe flooding in 2013, Fort McMurray experienced significant changes to many of its waterways, including debris accumulation and stream bank failures. Associated Environmental was a regulatory liaison for applications and approvals, completed onsite environmental monitoring, and provided technical advice.
Associated Environmental was retained by CEMA's Terrestrial Subgroup (TSG) to assist with revisions to their Revegetation Manual (2nd Edition). As part of the process, AE engaged oil-sands mine reclamation planners, practitioners, contractors and other stakeholders for their input to the planned revisions. The purpose of the project is to re-focus revegetation techniques to establish upland forest ecosystems with multiple end uses such as traditional use, recreation, or commercial forest.
Associated Environmental Consultants Inc. works with industry, government, developers and planners to help ensure reclamation programs comply with relevant environmental regulations. In reclamation planning and implementation, we consider passive reclamation potential, end land-use objectives, available soil substrates, appropriate vegetation species and overall ecosystem function. A holistic approach to reclamation planning and implementation is possible with our experienced soil, vegetation ecology and wildlife scientists. We also work to manage existing programs to ensure the right information is being collected to meet approval needs. Our services in this field include:
