O.Reg 406/19-On-Site and Excess Soils Management (from McIntosh Perry)
December 4, 2019, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) passed a new regulation related to the management of excess soil from new and existing sites. The goal of the new regulation is to reduce soil management costs and promote brownfields redevelopment while protecting human health and the environment.
In June 2020, MECP delayed the implementation of these regulations in order to give developers and municipalities more time to gradually apply the new rules while prioritizing their COVID-19 response. The first phase has now taken effect as of January 1, 2021. McIntosh Perry has a team of Qualified Persons (QP) under the Regulation and would be pleased to discuss this regulation and your Site questions.
