The aim of these objectives is to protect the quality of British Columbia's environment for the benefit of present and future citizens of this Province and Canada. The objectives provide for use of the environment's assimilative capacity within limits which do not lead to unacceptable conditions. Waste management involves careful balancing of air and water pollution abatement, as well as solid waste disposal. One phase should not be operated at the environmental expense of another. The over-all objectives should be to reduce the volume, concentration, and toxicity of waste discharges, and to dispose of them in the medium with the greatest assimilative capacity. The Objectives are intended to apply Province-wide and are to be considered as minimum levels of performance. However, where sensitive environmental situations exist, the Director of Pollution Control may apply more stringent requirements. Conversely, less stringent requirements may be allowed where it can be satisfactorily demonstrated that deleterious changes will not follow.
