Filing of Records of Site Condition (RSC) with Ministry of Environmental and Climate Change has become an integral part of today's land development projects across several municipalities and alsofor reasons such as due diligence, road conveyances, land use changes or sometimes even baseline requirements. Records of Site Condition can submitted based on Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and/or Phase Two ESA and/or Risk Assessment.
This talk will focus on insights and experiences gained in meeting the requirements of Ontario Regulation 153/04, as amended in 2011, addressing Potentially Contaminating Activities (PCAs), Areas of Potential Environmental Concern (APECs), and preparation of Conceptual Site Models, specific to Phase One and Phase Two ESAs.
