Join the Canadian Institute for Resources Law and the Faculty of Law for a free public lecture on Regulating Pits for Aggregate Extraction in or near Water Bodies on Private Lands in Alberta.
Aggregate is a non-renewable resource and includes sand, gravel, clay and marl. Aggregate extraction is a commercial or industrial land use that may have significant impacts on an adjacent water body when land is disturbed to develop and operate an open pit excavation, or to maintain a stockpile of aggregate. This presentation will review the provincial legal regime in place in Alberta to regulate and control development and operation of pits on private lands when the pit is to be located in or adjacent to a surface water body. Gaps in policy and regulatory schemes will be discussed.
This event is sponsored by the Alberta Law Foundation.
