Detailed Site Investigations (DSI)

Detailed Site Investigations (DSI)

Phase II Environmental Site Assessment and Stage 2 Preliminary Site Investigation that identify contamination often recommend a Detailed Site Investigations (DSI).  A DSI finds the extents of contamination to quantify impacts to soil, groundwater and soil vapour. The details on contaminant type, severity and amount will inform further remediation or risk assessment options.  A DSI may include off-Site investigations if contamination has moved past the Site boundaries. A DSI is required prior to remediation for any type of permit release or Certification Document from the Ministry of Environment (BC ENV).

Property Redevelopment and Schedule 2 Uses

Property Redevelopment and Schedule 2 Uses

Schedule 2 uses are land uses or operations that are associated with a higher likelihood of potential impacts to soil, water and soil vapour.  Common examples of Schedule 2 uses are gas stations, dry cleaners, and automotive repair. An identified Schedule 2 use does not mean that a property is contaminated. It does mean assessment is likely to be requested by the Ministry of Environment (BC ENV) prior to potential development, subdivision or change in zoning.
