Regulatory Follow-up for Subsoil SAR SST Implementation

GL 15-SGRC-03

Industry would benefit from this project in terms of reduced investigation and remediation costs as well as improved environmental performance. Subsoil SAR currently has inadequately refined guidelines which may lead to over-remediation of certain sites or the inability to generate effective remediation or risk management plans on other sites due to a lack of appropriate, risk-based guidelines. This could ultimately result in the accelerated return of historically salt-impacted land to productive use while maximizing soil conservation and the effectiveness of remediation resources.
