Environmental monitoring is an important aspect to construction projects. The success of activities such as soil handling, for example, prior-to and during construction can have enormous effects on reclamation success following construction. JPE uses field personnel with a wide variety of biophysical knowledge, including soil, agronomy, erosion and sediment control, vegetation and wetlands to ensure clients are getting value for their monitoring and inspection dollars. Field personnel are educated in environmental sciences and have the experience required to achieve success throughout the project timeline.
Jack Pine Environmental (JPE) has a high level of experience conducting post-constructing monitoring, weed surveys, construction monitoring, and reclamation work within Central and western Canada. JPE has several years of experience managing projects, conducting field work, and writing high quality reports. This level of experience allows JPE to provide clients with exceptional value and quality in all aspects of our work.
As a small company, JPE is able to provide personal service and exceptional deliverables, often at a cost lower than larger firms. We are always willing to work with clients, and are able to be flexible on scope, timing, and costs in order to meet client budgets and deadlines.

As per the Canadian Standards Association, the objective of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is to determine whether the subject property is or may be subject to contamination; to identify areas of potential environmental concern and associated contaminants of potential concern, if any; and to determine if a Phase II ESA is required. Phase I ESAs are generally completed prior to purchasing or leasing land/property to ensure no previous environmental liabilities exist. JPE has a high level of experience conducting Phase I ESA’s for residential, commercial and oil and gas properties/clients. JPE’s site assessors have acquired specific Phase I and Phase II ESA training through the Associated Environmental Site Assessors of Canada. JPE completes Phase I ESAs in accordance with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z768‑01 Phase I ESA Standard. We are able to tailor reports to fit the needs and the budget of our clients, while maintaining accuracy and quality.
Weed surveys are conducted prior to the construction of a linear development (i.e., pipeline, highway, transmission line, or other) in support of regulatory submission requirements. Weed surveys serve to provide the client with an inventory of weeds within an area which can assist in vegetation management planning during the life of the project. JPE uses experienced personnel with knowledge of weed species throughout Central and Western Canada.
The purpose of a Post-Construction Monitoring (PCM) Report is to discuss the effectiveness of mitigation and reclamation measures
along the reclaimed right-of-way following the construction of a pipeline. Jack Pine Environmental can conduct both Post-Construction Reclamation Assessments (PCRA) which are regulated by Alberta Energy Regulator; and Post-Construction Environmental Monitoring (PCEM) programs, regulated by the National Energy Board. Our data collection includes soil, landscape and vegetation monitoring, as well as watercourse crossing and wetland assessments. JPE will use a highly experienced team to handle all aspects of meeting your regulatory reporting requirements, to ensure all requirements are met, with accuracy and efficiency.
