Small, remote First Nation communities in B.C. have historically disposed of waste in un-regulated, non-engineered sites, located near residential areas and aquatic environments. These sites were a source of health and environmental concern to these communities and the Federal agencies involved. In 2009, Golder began an on-going collaboration with INAC and several BC First Nations to facilitate a program implementing sustainable remediation solutions for these unregulated remote community landfills (the Sites).
The program used a risk-based decommissioning approach whereby closure of landfills in-place using an engineered cover was supported by Golder risk assessments. This webinar will provide an overview of the risk-based closure program
