Schedule 1.1

[en. B.C. Reg. 343/2008, s. 11.]

Summary of Site Condition

Purpose of this Summary of Site Condition

This Summary of Site Condition will serve several purposes. It will provide the Ministry of Environment (the ministry) with a summary of key information that will be used to understand the status of investigations and remediation, the nature and extent of remediation that is proposed or has been undertaken, further work that will be required, or closure documentation requested that is authorized by legislation and regulations in B.C. The Summary of Site Condition will also provide information to persons with an interest in investigations and management of contaminants on or adjacent to a property or properties that are considered a site.

The information contained in this Summary of Site Condition is provided by or on behalf of the British Columbia Ministry of Environment to assist individuals to become familiar with conditions and issues at a site for which contaminant investigations and / or remediation have been carried out and reviewed under the guidance of the British Columbia Contaminated Sites Regulation (CSR), the Hazardous Waste Regulation (HWR), and the Environmental Management Act (EMA).

It is emphasized that this is a summary only and should in no case be the sole basis for important decisions about the site. Those with an interest in contaminant issues and the status of the site should seek more complete technical information as contained in site investigation, risk assessment, remediation plan and confirmation of remediation reports prepared by and signed by appropriately qualified individuals. Firms and individuals that rely on the information contained herein do so entirely at their own risk.

Notes and instructions

A Summary of Site Condition is to be completed by the Approved Professional(s) making submission to the Ministry of Environment with application for a regulatory instrument (e.g. Determination, Approval in Principle, Contaminated Soil Relocation Agreement or Certificate of Compliance).

This Summary of Site Condition will provide ministry regulatory officials with much of the information on which they will evaluate the recommendation of an Approved Professional(s).

A separate Summary of Site Condition is required for each service request submitted for a site.

All applicable parts of this Summary of Site Condition and required attachments (e.g., site plan; site plan showing areas of potential environmental concern, and/or areas of environmental concern) must be completed and submitted or the Summary will be returned and processing of any application(s) will be delayed.

If the Summary of Site Condition is to accompany a recommendation by an Approved Professional that a service be provided as described in section 7.1 of the Contaminated Sites Regulation, the following must also be submitted with the package:

[ ] a completed Contaminated Sites Service Application form

[ ] a contaminated sites legal instrument cover letter (hard copy and electronic version)

[ ] a completed draft contaminated sites legal instrument

[ ] the applicable fees

[ ] a signed Summary of Site Condition (hard copy and electronic version with PDF format preferred).

Failure to accurately fill out the Summary of Site Condition may result in delays issuing the legal instrument.

Part 7: Recommendation of Approved Professional(s)

7.1 Regulatory Instrument and Summary Recommendation

Based on the detailed technical information available for the site, as summarized in this Summary of Site Condition, I Approved Professional Name recommend that the following instrument be issued for the Subject Site.

[ ] A Determination under section 44 of EMA

[ ] An AiP under section 53 (1) of EMA

[ ] A CoC under section 53 (3) of EMA

[ ] A CSRA under section 55 (2) of EMA

[ ] Other (specify)

Although I understand that the basis of such recommendations should be formally evaluated only by reference to detailed technical guidance, the primary basis of this recommendation or these recommendations is as follows:

For a recommendation for a Determination:

• <On the basis of information provided and reviewed, it is my opinion that no CSR Schedule 2 activities have occurred at the subject site>, or < CSR Schedule 2 activities are known or suspected to have occurred at the subject site, therefore in my opinion contaminants may have been released onto the subject site so that the site would be classified as a contaminated site in accordance with the CSR> or < CSR Schedule 2 activities are known or suspected to have occurred at the subject site, but it is my opinion that the specific nature of such activities would not result in contamination so that the site would be classified as a contaminated site in accordance with the CSR>.

• A Preliminary Site Investigation addressing all identified areas of potential environmental concern (APECs) and potential contaminants of concern (PCOCs) was completed. No substances were identified in concentrations exceeding those identified in BC CSR Schedules 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 or 11, as applicable. All PCOCs have been listed in Schedule B of the draft Determination.

• For a recommendation for an Approval in Principle and for a Certificate of Compliance:

• A Preliminary Site Investigation addressing all identified areas of potential environmental concern (APECs) and potential contaminants of concern (PCOCs) was completed. One or more substances were identified at concentrations exceeding applicable standards or criteria in CSR Schedule 4, 5, 6, 7, 10 or 11 or criteria in Schedule 9.

• A Detailed Site Investigation addressing the locations and extent of all identified areas of environmental concern (AECs) and contaminants of concern was completed <and forms the basis of a remediation plan or risk assessment> or <was the basis for remediation of the site>.

• When this Summary of Site Condition was prepared <a remediation plan had been prepared that provides for remediating all identified locations and respective extent of all contaminants to either CSR numerical or risk-based standards> or <all contaminants and their respective locations and extent as identified in investigation and risk assessment reports had been remediated to CSR numerical concentration or risk-based standards or criteria (sediments) or both>.

For recommendation for a Contaminated Soil Relocation Agreement:

• The source site soil and receiving site have been adequately characterized to recommend issuance of a Contaminated Soil Relocation Agreement under Protocol 6.

7.2 Substances Remediated and Standards or Criteria

<Contaminants have been remediated to comply with standards or criteria listed in the following table:>

(If the site required remediation and has been remediated.)

 Substances Remediated for Each Type of Standard / Criteria

Notes

1. All values in μg/g unless otherwise stated. Substances must be analyzed using methods specified in a director's protocol or alternate methods acceptable to the director.

2. The site-specific factors of human intake of contaminated soil and toxicity to soil invertebrates and plants specified in this matrix apply at all sites.

3. Intake pathway of exposure modeled is inadvertent ingestion of soil.

4. Insufficient acceptable data exists, so standards are set equal to the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment 1999 provisional soil quality criteria.

5. The pH is the pH of the soil at a site.

6. Standard has been adjusted based on a reference provincial background soil concentration. Standard represents the rounded sum of the toxicologically-based value plus the reference provincial background soil concentration. For all land uses, the reference provincial background soil concentration is 108.6 μg/g.
