Management of Contaminated Petroleum Storage Tank Sites

Alberta Environment and Parks is working closely with stakeholders to phase in a system to enhance management and encourage cleanup of contaminated petroleum storage tank sites in Alberta.

Sign off must include the professional's signature and either a) registration/membership number or b) stamp/seal

The requirements for professional sign off were developed by the Remediation and Reclamation Sign Off Advisory Committee and are contained in their recommendations report.

The department has developed a fact sheet describing the professional declaration and sign off requirements and responsibilities for environmental site assessment, remediation and reclamation work in support of a reclamation certificate in Alberta.
