Construction Site Monitoring & Erosion and Sediment Control

Construction Site Monitoring

Origo Environmental consistently employs best management practices no matter the size of the project. Construction Site Monitoring (CSM) is a requirement of a construction project to ensure steps are taken to minimize the impact to the surrounding environment, and is often a necessary condition and requirement of a development permit.

Our staff involved in CSM have taken the necessary courses and are able to provide knowledgeable insight to save you time and money.

Erosion and Sediment Control

Effective Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) planning and implementation is  a requirement of a development permit. It is also a requirement for all developers to abide by the laws preventing the release of sediment into fish-bearing waters, irrespective how remote this might seem.

The control of deleterious material onto, through and how it exits a site is especially important if the work site is adjacent to a fish-bearing body of water.

Property developers are reminded that they are responsible under law for implementing and maintaining erosion and sediment control measures. Fines can be stiff and can tarnish reputations. It is our goal to help developers navigate through these issues and keep our clients ‘out of trouble’.

Origo can provide recommendations and mitigation measures that will control and minimize erosion and sediment movement during all construction activities onsite. We can also provide Environmental Monitors to visit your site and make recommendations, and can assist you implementing effective ESC measures.

Our staff involved in ESC implementation have taken the necessary courses and are certified in BC to provide these services.

Our goal is to keep clients from breaking the law, optimize their develop timing and to save them money.
