Sustainable remediation is an integral part of the management of Federal contaminated properties. As part of the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan (FCSAP) toolkit, Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) and Golder Associates have developed a tool to assist property manager’s select sustainable remediation options for contaminated sites.

The Sustainable Development Analysis Tool (SDAT) is an online application which conducts a thorough analysis of the economic, social and environmental impacts of remedial options. Once completed the tool provides users with a detailed sustainability scoring for each technology.

This hands-on training session will use a combination of theory and practice to demonstrate how to use SDAT. In order to use the tool with a case study, participants must bring a WiFi-enabled laptop.

Following the training sessions, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how SDAT works and how the results are obtained;
  • Be able to select and apply the appropriate indicators;
  • Review and interpret the results; and,
  • Apply SDAT in the management of their contaminated sites and for the selection of remediation options.

The training is targeted to both public and private sector contaminated site managers. Two sessions will be offered, a morning session aimed at Federal contaminated site managers and an afternoon session for private sector consultants.

Both session will be given in English however all training materials will be available in French and English.
