GeoPro Talks - Cleanup and Smart “In-Up”: Tracking brownfields redevelopment outcomes using Ontario’s RSCs
The talk highlights the use of phytoremediation in Northeastern BC to remediate heavier end petroleum hydrocarbons (i.e., more recalcitrant compounds). An overview of site conditions (location, soils), regulatory requirements and client needs will be discussed along with the remedial option selection process. Several different plant species were planted to determine if one or more species was better suited to the contaminants and the climate. One of the projects goals was to use the information gathered from this project to determine if phytoremediation would be an effective remediation technology at similar land farms owned by the client.

Christopher, Director & Professor of School of Urban and Regional Planning shares his research on using Record of Site Conditions in Ontario for tracking brownfields redevelopment outcomes. A record of site condition (RSC) sets out the environmental condition of a property at a particular point in time, based on environmental site assessments conducted by a qualified person. An RSC must be filed in this registry before property use changes in certain ways.
