Environmental Site Assessment Repository Search

Effective immediately, the ELC offices will be open shorter hours of 9 am to 2 pm and with limited staff in the office to allow us to adhere to the government’s request to socially distance, while still maintaining a productive team and helping create a safe and stable environment for everyone.

Most staff will be offsite, but this does not mean we are unavailable. We will continue to serve our community through virtual meetings and all staff can be reached by phone and email. We are all working and are here to help if you need a hand or have any questions!
