SEARCH OUR SITE FOR SERVICES

DEVELOPMENT PERMITS

Balanced Environmental obtains Development Permits on behalf of proponents with projects located near a stream, lake, wetland or ocean. Works including performing baseline habitat surveys, stream surveys, wildlife, species at risk, hazard tree assessments, windthrow, fisheries values and more. Approvals include Section 9 of the Water Act and the Riparian Areas Regulation simple and detailed assessments.

FLOAT APPROVALS

Construction of a dock structure with a wharf, gangway and float requires approval in British Columbia. Balanced obtains those approvals by performing the necessary habitat investigations followed by preparation of the appropriate application. This includes surveying the site and drafting drawings of the proposed structures and water lots. Balanced has a team of biologist divers that have over 30 yeras of combined experience in performing field investigations.

DREDGING PERMITS

Balanced examines sediment and soils for compliance with provincial and federal regulations and makes applications for Disposal at Sea for projects located in the marine environment. Our sampling techniques have been approved by Environment Canada for the collection and analysis of sediments. Having performed sampling for major projects like the Port Mann Bridge Replacement project and the proposed dredging of the Lower Fraser from the Massey Tunnel to Steveston project, Balanced has the knowledge to obtaining dredging permits for a number of clients.

MARINA EXPANSION

Balanced has experienced staff having worked on the largest marinas in British Columbia including Gibsons Marina, Steveston Harbour, Port Edward, Rushbrook, Port Hardy, Ladysmith, Ford Cove, Campbell River, the Canadian Forces Base in Esquimalt, Thunderbird Marina, Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal, and more. Expansion of an existing marina, or construction of a new marina, both require similar types of assessments. Balanced performs all environmental investigations including underwater habitat surveys, species of risk assessments, soil sampling, habitat compensation negotiations and design, surveying and more. Permits and approvals include Fisheries Act Authorizations, Water Lot Leases, First Nation agreements, Canadian Environmental Assessment Act approvals, Navigable Water Protection Act approvals, and Disposal at Sea permits.

RISK ASSESSMENT

Many of our clients are seeking experienced Qualified Environmental Professionals, or QEPs, to help them determine project risks at various stages. Balanced staff are capable of providing examples of previous projects and outcomes to help forcast environmental risks before they occur.
