Reclamation and Remediation

Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) has developed the Remediation Certificate Program to encourage the remediation of sites. The initial stage of the program will make remediation certificates available for petroleum storage tank (PST) sites. PST sites include underground and aboveground storage tank facilities, which contain or have contained gasoline, diesel, used engine oil, solvents, heating oil, aviation fuel, or similar petroleum product.

AEP works with municipalities to ensure land used for specified industrial activities ("specified land") is reclaimed.

To do this, AEP:

Issues approvals

Collects security

Conducts inspections

Issues reclamation certificates

Undertakes compliance

Publishes reports and certificates
