New Direction for Coal Activity in the Eastern Slopes of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains

On March 4, the Government of Alberta released a report from a coal policy committee it formed in early 2021 to gather feedback on future policy as it relates to coal development in Alberta.

In response to the report, the Government of Alberta, through Ministerial Order 002/2022, has directed the AER to continue its suspension of all approvals, and to not accept any new applications, for coal exploration activities on Category 2 lands. This suspension is consistent with previous direction that was provided to the AER last year and will remain in place until written notice is given by the minister of Energy or the minister of Environment and Parks. 

The order further directs us to suspend approvals, and to not accept new applications, for coal exploration and development on Category 3 and 4 lands, except those that are related to an advanced coal project or an active approval for a coal mine (defined below). This direction will also remain in place until written notice is given by the minister of Energy or the minister of Environment and Parks.

The order defines “advanced coal projects” and “active approvals for coal mines” as follows:     

  • Advanced coal project – Proposed coal projects where applicants have submitted a project summary to the AER to determine whether an environmental impact assessment is required for the proposed project.
  • Active approval for a coal mine – Existing coal projects that have been granted a licence to operate under the Coal Conservation Act.

This means that advanced coal projects will continue to be reviewed by the AER to ensure any proposed exploration or development is safe, environmentally responsible, and meets all requirements, and that active coal mines can continue to operate on Category 3 and 4 lands within all AER requirements.

The order does not restrict abandonment and reclamation, security, or safety activities on Category 2, 3, and 4 lands. Operators are permitted to proceed with abandonment and reclamation activities and to enter these sites to

  • monitor and ensure the site is left in a state that is safe to the environment, wildlife and public, and 
  • perform routine checks and maintenance at the site to ensure all property and equipment is secure from wildlife access, vandalism, and weather events. 

Under the 1976 Coal Development Policy for Alberta, which is currently in effect, provincial lands are classified into four numbered categories with respect to coal exploration and development. The coal land classification map shows these categories. Under the policy, no coal exploration or development activities are permitted on Category 1 lands.

We will continue to implement future policy direction as it is received from the Government of Alberta. If you have any questions, contact our Customer Contact Centre by phone at 403-297-8311 (1-855-297-8311 toll free) or by email at inquiries@aer.ca.  

 

BC: Changes to Environmental Assessment Certificate for Trans Mountain

 

A cleaner Hamilton Harbour: All contaminated sediment removed or capped at Randle Reef

The Great Lakes are essential to the health and well-being of Canadians, ecosystems, and the economy. As one of the largest surface freshwater systems in the world, they provide water for forty million people and are an economic driver for Canada. Protecting and restoring them is vital.

Today, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, along with the Ontario Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, the Honourable David Piccini, and the Deputy Mayor of Hamilton, Jason Farr, announced the successful completion of Stage 2 of the Randle Reef Remediation Project. This is a significant step to remove toxic substances and restore water quality and ecosystem health in the Hamilton Harbour Area of Concern.

During Stage 2, over 615,000 cubic metres of contaminated sediment was managed, enough to fill a hockey rink nearly three times over. The sediment was primarily dredged and placed into an Engineered Containment Facility (ECF) constructed during the first stage, while the remaining contaminated sediment was capped in place. As part of the third and final stage of the project, scheduled to begin in fall 2022 and be completed by 2024, a multi-layered environmental top will be placed on the ECF as a final step to isolate contaminants. Once complete, the area will provide valuable new port land that will be managed by the Hamilton–Oshawa Port Authority, contributing to economic growth for the community.

The Randle Reef Remediation Project is a joint initiative involving the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, the City of Hamilton, Halton Region, the City of Burlington, Hamilton–Oshawa Port Authority, and Stelco. The $138.9-million cleanup is funded through a public‑private approach, with the federal government and the Province of Ontario each contributing a third of the funding and the remaining third collectively funded by local partners. The multi-year remediation plan, led by Environment and Climate Change Canada, focuses on removing and containing toxic sediment in the Reef area of the harbour, a legacy of the intense industrial and urban development around its shores dating back to the 1800s.

The Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario are collaborating and coordinating efforts to restore, protect, and conserve the Great Lakes through the Canada–Ontario Agreement on Great Lakes Water Quality and Ecosystem Health (COA). Canada and Ontario have committed to completing all remedial actions in six Great Lakes Areas of Concern by 2026. The Government of Canada is also implementing a strengthened Freshwater Action Plan with a historic investment to protect and restore large lakes and river systems, starting with the Great Lakes–St. Lawrence River System. The remediation of Randle Reef is one of many actions taken by the Government of Canada to restore, protect and conserve the Great Lakes and other waterways, while building a sustainable economy and creating jobs.

Quick facts
  • Randle Reef is located in the southwest corner of Hamilton Harbour and covers approximately sixty hectares.

  • In 1987, Hamilton Harbour was identified as an Area of Concern, as described under the Canada–US Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.

  • Areas of Concern are locations within the Great Lakes identified as having experienced high levels of environmental harm.

  • Under the 1987 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement between Canada and the United States, forty-three Areas of Concern were identified: twelve were Canadian and five were shared binationally.

  • The resulting port lands on the Randle Reef remediated site could generate an estimated $167 million in economic benefits for the local community by creating good jobs, growing business development, and generating tourism.

 

Cross-border Movement of Hazardous Waste and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulations

On October 31, 2021, the Cross-border Movement of Hazardous Waste and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulations (XBR) came into force.

Remediation Technology News and Resource

(The following are selected items from the US EPA’s Tech Direct – http://clu-in.org/techdirect/)


 

Upcoming Live Internet Seminars

ITRC Sustainable Resilient Remediation (SRR) – Mar 15, 2022, 1:00PM-3:15PM EDT (17:00-19:15 GMT). Extreme weather events and wildfires are increasing and impacting hazardous waste sites. The primary goal of cleanups, which is protecting human health and the environment, is undermined. Confronted with these risks, environmental professionals should assess, and design remedies that are sustainable and resilient. Sustainable resilient remediation (SRR) is an optimized solution to cleaning up and reusing a hazardous waste site that limits negative environmental impacts, maximizes social and economic benefits, and creates resilience against increasing threats. The objective of the ITRC Sustainable Resilient Remediation (SRR-1) is to provide resources and tools for regulators, stakeholders, consultants, and responsible parties to help integrate sustainable and resilient practices into remediation projects. This guidance updates the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council’s (ITRC) Technical and Regulatory Guidance: Green and Sustainable Remediation: A Practical Framework (ITRC 2011a) and includes a strong resilience component to address the increasing threat of extreme weather events and wildfires. Recommendations for careful and continuous consideration of the social and economic costs and benefits of a cleanup project are included. For more information and to register, see https://www.itrcweb.org or https://clu-in.org/live.

ITRC TPH Risk Evaluation at Petroleum-Contaminated Sites – Mar 17, 2022, 1:00PM-3:15PM EDT (17:00-19:15 GMT). The basis for this training course is the ITRC guidance: TPH Risk Evaluation at Petroleum-Contaminated Sites (TPHRisk-1, 2018). The guidance builds on long-standing and current research and experience, and presents the current science for evaluating TPH risk at petroleum-contaminated sites. As a participant in this training you should learn to: recognize the ITRC document as a go-to resource for evaluating TPH risk at petroleum-contaminated sites, recognize how TPH-impacted media interacts with the environment and changes over time, select appropriate analytic method(s) to match site objectives, and apply the decision framework to determine when a site-specific target level may be more appropriate than a generic screening level for TPH. For more information and to register, see https://www.itrcweb.org or https://clu-in.org/live.

 

New Documents and Web Resources

Green Remediation Best Management Practices: Pump and Treat Systems (EPA 542-F-21-029). In line with the renewed Agency emphasis on sustainability and climate change resilience and mitigation, the Superfund Program is proceeding to update the very popular green remediation best management practice (BMP) fact sheets for the most common remedies in the Superfund program. The goal of these fact sheets is to share technical information on best practices that build sustainability into contaminated site cleanup operations across the portfolio of remediation approaches. The green remediation (GR) fact sheet on pump and treat systems has been one of the most popular “GR factsheets,” with over 10,000 downloads since it was first released. The updated fact sheet includes new BMPs gathered from projects across the country and describes how climate resilience is being built into our sites to ensure continued remedy protectiveness. The fact sheet also highlights synergies between green remediation and climate adaptation practices, where one action provides both greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation and climate resilience. Examples are BMPs involving use of renewable energy, green infrastructure or carbon sequestering vegetation that mitigate GHG emissions and add resilience to ongoing climate change. The fact sheet also highlights how advanced practices gleaned from Superfund’s optimization and technical support work, such as reclaiming and reusing treated water for beneficial purposes, help reduce the environmental footprint of remedies. To view or download, please visit https://clu-in.org/greenremediation/docs/GR_fact_sheet_pump_treat.pdf.

ITRC PFAS Technical and Regulatory Guidance Document. This updated guidance document is designed specifically to support state and federal environmental staff, as well as others (including stakeholders, project managers, and decision makers), to gain a working knowledge of the current state of PFAS science and practice. Developed by a team of over 400 environmental practitioners drawn from state and federal government, academia, industry, environmental consulting, and public interest groups, it also provides a summary of the current understanding of all aspects of PFAS from a broad perspective. For more information and to view the updated guidance document, please visit https://pfas-1.itrcweb.org/#1_7.

Technology Innovation News Survey Corner. The Technology Innovation News Survey contains market/commercialization information; reports on demonstrations, feasibility studies and research; and other news relevant to the hazardous waste community interested in technology development.
