Property information related to the environment can be obtained from the City. Each area of interest must be contacted separately. A letter of consent from the property or company owner(s) is typically needed.

To speed up the process, include the street address, legal address, tax roll account number (if available) and whether the property is vacant or has a structure. There may be a fee connected with these information searches.

The results of the searches do not constitute a complete Environmental Site Assessment, and do not replace the services provided by a qualified Environmental Consultant. The presence or absence of any information on file with the City of Edmonton regarding an operation or property does not imply the presence or absence of environmental problems or difficulties.

The City of Edmonton accepts no responsibility or liability for the accuracy of the information provided and the information should not be considered a substitute for proper investigation.

Radon Testing

The City of Edmonton does not carry out testing for radon gas.

Radon is an odourless radioactive gas that occurs naturally in the environment. Naturally occurring radon comes from the breakdown of uranium, which is a common trace element in some natural geologic materials such as granite, shale or phosphate minerals.

Levels of naturally occurring radon are variable. Testing for radon is simple and inexpensive, and radon test kits may be purchased from a number of local retailers.

For further information on radon, you can check out:
