Environmentally Responsible Best Practices &

Environmental Business Inspections

Commercial and industrial businesses in Delta are expected to operate in a manner that does not cause damage to the environment. A new program has been developed where Delta staff inspect businesses to ensure compliance with environmental bylaws, and provide education and advice on pollution management best practices. Inspections will be evaluating practices such as sanitary wastewater control, prevention of polluted water discharge in storm water systems, solid and hazardous waste management, chemical storage procedures, air emissions control, and noise control.
