Alberta Transportation pre-disturbance assessment guide for borrow excavations

Description

Under Alberta’s Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act, operators are required to return a disturbed site to a land capability equivalent to its pre-disturbance land capability. This guide explains steps to follow when carrying out a pre-disturbance assessment. The pre-disturbance assessment serves two purposes: to establish the pre-disturbance land capability of the site; and to provide guidance to operators to direct soil salvage.
