Just a few short weeks ago, Version 1 of BC’s Protocol 19 for Contaminated Sites, as issued by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, was officially enforced. Not to sound like your channel 9 News Broadcast, but this is BIG NEWS for the environmental industry and has raised questions and concerns about how it will affect project timelines and budgets.
As an environmental laboratory, we will leave the full interpretation of the soil relocation web (Figure 1, below) to the professionals: the consultants, environmental contractors, and the provincial government. Where we CAN help as your laboratory experts is by doing what we do best – quick and reliable soil testing. When it comes to Protocol 19, CARO does it all, including Metals and PAHs in accordance with Protocol 19 section 5.3, and other potential contaminants of concern (PCOCs) that may crop up. Keep reading for the details around our QUICK, LOW-COST Soil Relocation Package, designed to ease the uncertainty around timelines and budgets as you navigate these changes.

In response to these concerns, we have designed a SOIL RELOCATION SPECIAL PACKAGE that offers a little bit of something for everyone: one low cost (for those $-conscious programs), a quick TAT (for those last-minute planners), and the high-quality data you have come to expect from CARO (…obviously.)
