Step 7: Develop remediation/risk management strategy

A remediation/risk management (R/RM) strategy specifies the remedial or management actions that will reduce the levels of, and exposure to, bioavailable and toxic contaminants so that existing or potential risks to humans and the environment are rendered acceptable. FCSAP DFO expert support concerns usually pertain to how the R/RM strategy will impact fish and fish habitat and the sustainability of aquatic ecosystems. Information obtained as part of the site classification process is used to assist in developing a site-specific R/RM strategy. The R/RM strategy is implemented in Step 8.
