Abstract: Contaminated sites legislation (Waste Management Amendment Act, 1993) was passed by the British Columbia Legislature on June 15, 1993, but its proclamation awaits completion and approval of the regulation. The legislation is directed at historical contamination. It provides a regulatory framework for managing contaminated sites, and spells out responsibility for remediation in accordance with the "polluter pay" principle. Exemptions to liability as required for greater fairness are included. The contaminated sites regulation now in preparation provides technical and procedural details as well as further guidelines regarding liability. Standards which define contaminated sites and satisfactory remediation will be included in the regulation. This paper reviews the legislation and regulation, provides a status update, and highlights provisions applicable to mine sites.
