Request for Comment on Revised Waste Management Policy

The Land and Water Boards of the Mackenzie Valley (the LWBs) are inviting comments and recommendations on a draft Waste Management Policy (the Policy), which will replace the Water and Effluent Quality Management Policy that was released in 2011. The new title of the Policy reflects its expanded scope, which includes the range of waste types regulated by the LWBs through both land use permits and water licences. The draft Policy has also been updated to the current context of applicable legislation; LWB policies, guidelines, and best practices; and the LWBs’ Standard Water Licence and Land Use Pemit Conditions Templates. The Water and Effluent Quality Management Policy will remain in effect until the Waste Management Policy is finalized.

Reviewers are invited to submit comments and recommendations on the draft Policy by April 11, 2022.
