Impact Assessment of Preferred Option

Atmospheric Environment (Air Quality and Odour) 

  • A minor decrease in air quality off-site due to dust which will be mitigated
  • No off-site odours anticipated

Proposed Impact Management Measures, Monitoring, and Commitments 

Continue to implement existing Dust Management Measures

  • Water and sweep on-site roads to control road dust
  • Cover vehicles transporting waste to the SCRF to prevent odour and dust
  • Ensure vehicles pass through on-site wheel-wash to minimize dirt track-out from the SCRF
  • Limit vehicle speeds on on-site roads to minimize road dust
  • Use ongoing particulate monitoring so that daily vehicle traffic does not result in poor air quality levels 

 Implement Additional Dust Management Measures

  • Pave new and or moved on-site road
  • Restrict vehicle traffic near the buffer areas 

Continue to Implement Current Air Quality Monitoring Plan

  • Monitor air quality on-site by measuring airborne particulate PM10 (dust) and meteorological conditions 
  • Monitor and respond to dust and odour issues at the SCRF

Atmospheric Environment (Noise) 

Potential increase to off-site noise from the following, which will be minimized: 

  • Decrease in the separation distance between the landfill activities and adjacent residential properties to the north of the SCRF 

Proposed Impact Management Measures, Monitoring and Commitments  

  • Maintain existing noise barrier (berm, trees, etc.) to the north property line to reduce noise
    impacts, as required
  • Continue to complete semi-annual noise monitoring
  • Investigate the conditions and/or sources contributing to any noise complaints

Human Health 

  • No impact anticipated from leachate, groundwater, surface water, or soil
  • No impact anticipated from air quality (i.e., dust) with standard dust management measures

Proposed Impact Management Measures, Monitoring and Commitments

  • Implement additional dust management practices as needed 
  • Continue to conduct annual Community Health Review Assessments
