Environmental Protection Plans (EPP) and ECO Plans
Site-specific environmental documentation is critical in the identification and communication of environmental sensitivities. Environmental Protection Plans (EPP) and Environmental Construction Operation (ECO) Plans ensure environmental impact mitigation strategies are in alignment with regulatory authorizations and best management practices. By understanding construction practices, we can help develop creative solutions to constructing in and near sensitive environments.
Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Monitoring
Prior to in-stream construction, our technicians conduct background sampling to establish the chemical and physical characteristics of the waterbody. During construction, we use these values to monitor turbidity, measured as Total Suspended Solids (TSS), to be compared with regulated thresholds.
Post-Construction Reclamation Assessments
Assessing post-construction soil characteristics and vegetation communities ensures that regulatory and land-owner commitments are satisfied and documented. Through detailed assessment of biophysical elements, clients can effectively measure the success of their Right-of-Way reclamation and identify deficiencies. Our team of Professional Agrologists and technicians are here to help!
Regulatory Support Services
Experienced in navigating municipal, provincial and federal regulatory frameworks; Little Fox supports clients from project inception through to closure. Evolving with rapidly changing regulatory environments, we effectively liaise with Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) to acquire regulatory approvals.
Environmental compliance management means adopting a proactive approach to environmental performance and due diligence. Through implementing compliance management tools such as site audits and inspections, we can help clients ensure that conditions of approval are met and opportunities for continuous improvement are identified.
