Sites of Potential Environmental Concern


Data Identification
Abstract: This layer depicts the locations of over 900 sites of potential environmental concern within the Yukon, including sites with known or suspected contamination; sites with physical hazards such as old adits, abandoned headframes and buildings; and sites with aesthetic concerns such as abandoned vehicles and debris. This layer includes all sites from a more detailed database maintained by the Environmental Programs Branch, Yukon Department of Environment.
Purpose: The intent of this layer is to enable land-use administrators to locate sites of potential environmental concern, and to provide contact information for the Environmental Programs Branch. When contacted about specific sites, staff in Environmental Programs will help users interpret the site data (e.g., whether a site is actually a "contaminated site" in accordance with the Yukon Contaminated Sites Regulation, or whether it presents other kinds of issues, such as physical hazards). Environmental Programs staff will also attempt to determine whether the site information in the database is current and complete.
