CBCL Selected for DCC Environmental Services Pollution Prevention Program MARLANT SOA

DND has produced a Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) to achieve Government of Canada and DND sustainability goals. The reduction or elimination of sources of contamination is one of the goals of the SDS. To meet this goal, DND plans its activities to prevent/eliminate pollution and monitor compliance to the plan through their ongoing Pollution Prevention Program.

The main focus of the Pollution Prevention Program is to verify compliance to applicable environmental standards. The Pollution Prevention Program includes Process Improvement Monitoring, Long Term Monitoring and Range Verification Programs. The various programs involve the collection of effluent, groundwater, surface water and/or sediment samples at over 10 DND sites across Nova Scotia.
