    Land Reclamation in Alberta. Whether you manage petro chemical plant sites or oil pipeline shipping companies, you know how important it is to keep the environment around you safe for your employees and surrounding Albertan communities. To ensure your company remains safe for everyone around, you need a professional for land reclamation in Alberta. The aim of reclamation under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act is to obtain "equivalent land capacity," which is defined as the ability of the land to support various land uses after conservation and reclamation similar to the ability that existed prior to activity being conducted on the land.

      The British Columbia Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation originated in the early 's, in response to a demonstrated need in BC for greater government-industry communications in the area of environmental protection and reclamation associated with mining. My co-authors for the book Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta were Bob Bott and Graham Chandler. Many experts were on the steering committee and among those we interviewed. Key experts included Larry Brocke, Bruce Patterson, Chris Powter, and Fred Thiessen, who were leaders in land reclamation within the province.

    In general, reclamation specialists work to return disturbed land to its equivalent land use after it has been impacted by erosion, mining, oil and gas activities, flooding, commercial development or other processes. This is an emerging occupation. reclaim areas disturbed for industrial development to equivalent land capability, wherever possible (Government of Alberta ). Equivalent land capability is defined as “.the ability of the land to support various land uses after conservation and reclamation is similar to the ability that existed prior.
