JBL Environmental Services Ltd.

Environmental Management Services for Construction

JBL Environmental Services (JBL) has experience developing project-specific Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMP), Environmental Protection Plans (EPP), and Erosion and Sediment Control Plans (ESCP). A CEMP/EPP is required for projects that have the potential to adversely affect the aquatic or terrestrial environment. The CEMP/EPP is intended to provide guidance to assure and facilitate environmental compliance (e.g., through permits) during the construction phase of the project. The CEMP/EPP addresses environmental concerns and compliance issues, best management practices (BMPs), and mitigation measures required to minimize the adverse environmental effect of the project. JBL has prepared CEMPs/EPPs for various construction projects, including: transportation, excavation and property development adjacent to watercourses, wetlands, and marine foreshore areas. Our environmental management services also include permitting (e.g., federal [DFO] Fisheries Act authorizations and provincial [FLNRORD] Water Sustainability Act approvals or notifications), raptor and migratory bird active nest surveys, fish and wildlife salvages, and environmental monitoring for construction.
