NCS Fluid Handling Systems – Specialists in ESC across Canada

Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) is a critical aspect of environmental management, particularly in regions like Western Canada and British Columbia (BC). This blog post will delve into the importance of ESC, the regulations governing it, and how NCS Fluid Handling Systems has emerged as a leader in this field, particularly in the lower mainland of BC.

Why is ESC Important?

ESC, also known as stormwater runoff control, involves a suite of methods used to prevent soils from eroding from a piece of land and to capture any that do erode1Eroded particles of soil, or sediments, can easily be moved off construction and landscaping sites by flowing water ending up in natural water bodies1These sediments can cause damage to receiving water bodies1Sediment in water bodies can reduce the amount of sunlight reaching aquatic plants, clog or abrade fish gills causing suffocation, smother aquatic feeding sites and spawning areas, and interfere with fishes’ ability to navigate1Preventing and controlling erosion is essential to the protection of natural streams, rivers, and saltwater ecosystems1.

Regulations Governing ESC

In Canada, the Fisheries Act prohibits the deposit or release of a deleterious (toxic) substance to fish-bearing waters1In high concentration, sediment is recognized as a deleterious substance1In addition, most municipalities have bylaws making it illegal to allow sediment-laden water to enter municipal storm drains or ditches1Provincial legislation in British Columbia also makes it an offence to pollute a stream1As a result, everyone who undertakes a construction or landscaping project that could cause erosion is advised to consider erosion prevention before they begin their project1.
