Implementation of the Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) Program in the metal mines sector
Symposium Rouyn-Noranda 2002
The new Canadian Metal Mining Effluent Regulation was enacted on June 6, 2002. Within the scope of this Regulation, all mines subject to the Regulation must carry out studies to monitor the effects of their effluents on the aquatic environment, especially on fish, fish habitat and halieutic resources. This presentation will emphasize the implementation of the Program as well as the requirements and technical guidelines associated with the EEM program; it will also include a schedule for submittal of the study plans, the results and the interpretation reports.
