Soil quality criteria relative to disturbance and reclamation

Description

A report was prepared, reviewed by the Alberta Soils Advisory Committee, and published in 1981 under the title "Proposed Soil Quality Criteria in Relation to Disturbance and Reclamation". During the intervening four years, it has received considerable attention and many constructive suggestions for revision. Where new information, or more complete interpretations of earlier data have been available, revisions have been made. The report that follows deals with the first four terms of reference, and has benefited from consultation with many Soil Scientists, Pedologists, and others involved in reclamation. The subcommittee did not address the term of reference dealing with soil quality for waste utilization, as provincial guidelines governing wastewater and sludge application to soil presently exist. The subcommittee is aware that a number of government agencies are involved in regulating the selection and operation of landfill sites and other waste disposal emplacements.
