Utility Services is ISO 14001:2004 certified. The Environmental Management System covers all activities in planning, construction, and operations.
Utility Services is one of the highest risk environmental areas in the City of Edmonton and has greatly benefited from the implementation of the Environmental Management System.
Significant environmental aspects include
- Untreated Wastewater Discharge
- Stormwater Discharge
- Contaminated Site and Land Use
- Erosion and Sedimentation
- Solid Waste
- Habitat Disruption and Loss
- Energy Use
- Air Emissions
Utility Services' Environmental Management System reduces the environmental risk associated with these aspects. This is done through engineering controls and operating procedures. Regular review by both internal and external parties helps ensure the system remains viable and current. Utility Services was the first operational area in the City to operate under ISO 14001:2004 Certification.
