The Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (MOECP) formally announced having passed Regulation 406/19 (On-site and Excess Soil Management) in December 2019. Although the regulation’s gradual implementation stretches through July of 2026, environmental stakeholders should begin examining the various sampling and analysis requirements outlined in the Rules for Soil Management and Excess Soil Standards document. The purpose of this webinar is to provide a summary of the following components:

 Sample volumes and collection considerations;

  • Analytical testing: minimum and extended requirements;
  • Leachate testing: when and how to request it
  • Numerical standards: how to compare analytical results to the criteria 

Le ministère de l’Environnement, de la Protection de la nature et des Parcs de l’Ontario (MOECP) a officiellement annoncé avoir adopté le règlement 406/19 (Gestion des sols sur les lieux et des sols de déblai) en décembre 2019. Bien que la mise en œuvre progressive du règlement s’étende jusqu’en juillet 2026, les acteurs environnementaux concernés doivent commencer à étudier les différentes exigences en matière d’échantillonnage et d’analyse décrites dans le document intitulé Règles pour la gestion des sols et normes pour les terres d’excavation. L’objectif de ce webinaire est de fournir un résumé des éléments suivants :

 Volumes des échantillons et exigences en matière de prélèvement ;

  • Exigences minimales et étendues pour les analyses ;
  • Analyses de lixiviation : quand et comment en faire la demande ;
  • Normes numériques : comment comparer les résultats d’analyse aux critères.
