Ecological Risk Assessment

Intrinsik has scientists who work exclusively in the area of ecological risk assessment (ERA). They have completed aquatic and terrestrial ERAs in Canada, the United States and internationally. These assessments evaluated risk from contaminated sites, airborne emissions, leachate, runoff, land application of sludges, liquid effluents, and pesticides. These projects have included evaluation of legacy issues (such as historical contamination), spills, product application in natural environments, current operational releases, and proposed future releases associated with retrofits or new facilities. The breadth of experience of our staff on past projects ranges from simple screening level evaluation of small contaminated sites, to leading large, complex, wide area ERA studies, covering hundreds of square kilometres.

Intrinsik has completed ERAs for diverse client sectors, including:

  • Mining and smelting sites
  • Oil and gas facilities
  • Incinerators
  • Pulp and paper mills
  • Commercial chemical manufacturers
  • Pesticide manufacturers
  • Waste management facilities
  • Energy facilities
  • Manufacturing sites
  • Aquaculture facilities

Our staff have advanced capabilities in:

  • Statistics
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Toxicology
  • Toxicity testing
  • Exposure modelling
  • Design of field programs
  • Use of weight-of-evidence approaches
