Second SEIMA Landfill Workshop


Regina – January 26, 2016 @ the RCMP Heritage Centre

Saskatoon – February 4, 2016 @ The Industrial Kitchen

We are now six months into using the Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2010 (EMPA 2010) and Saskatchewan Environmental Code.  By and large the code process has been well received.  However, some foibles, potential pitfalls and areas of clarification exist. As such, the Saskatchewan Environment Industry and Managers Association (SEIMA) is pleased to again partner with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment (Ministry) to provide an opportunity to explore the Code Chapters relating to impacted sites further.   The workshops will also cover the legal requirements and best practices around solid waste management and landfills in Saskatchewan under EMPA 2010 and the Municipal Refuse and Management Regulations.

Background

The Ministry is responsible for regulating waste management, compliance, and the overall protection of human health and the environment. As such, the Ministry has established requirements and practices for solid waste management in Saskatchewan, including issuing permits (to construct, expand and close a facility), reviewing monitoring results, inspections and enforcing legislation. As knowledge and techniques change, the ministry has adapted its solid waste management practices to reflect the mandate set out in the Saskatchewan Plan for Growth 2020, which is to ensure infrastructure addresses the challenges of growth and protects the environment. All municipally owned landfills and transfer stations will continue to be permitted pursuant to The Municipal Refuse Management Regulations and private and industrial landfills will be regulated pursuant to EMPA 2010.

The Workshop

The workshop will be led by Sarah Keith, Manager, Landfills and Ralph Bock, Manager, Hazmat and Impacted Sites. During the workshop the Ministry will provide information on:

  • How was management sites are regulated (Legislation and Best Practices);
  • How the Impacted Sites Code Chapters apply to landfill operations (further information on the Code Chapters will also be provided by the Ministry); and
  • What the ministry is looking for in submissions for design, construction, operation, closure and decommissioning of waste management facilities.

Saskatchewan Water Action Network (SWAN) in association with University of Saskatchewan is pleased to invite you to a SWAN Project Kick-Off & Networking Event

February 10, 2016

Wastewater is a valuable untapped resource. Water is more valuable than oil. You can live without food for 30 days; you can only live without water for 3 days. The world continues to find and roll out solutions that have tremendous advantages over legacy based solutions, but these solutions are slow to be adopted and slow to be leveraged or collaborated around in order to advance them to the next level.

 This event will enable growth and advancement in the areas of environmental, social and economic impact related to water management and water treatment infrastructure. As a follow up to the previous SWAN event, the theme continues to be “Water Recovery & Reuse”.
