“Minister” means the Minister of the Environment.

“Normal operating conditions” means representative of regular or typical operating conditions related to the use of hydrazine which results in an effluent containing hydrazine at the final discharge point. This would include any regularly scheduled events other than startup and shutdown.

“Notice” means the proposed Notice requiring the preparation and implementation of pollution prevention plans in respect of hydrazine related to the electricity sector.

“Operator” means the person who operates or has charge, management or control of a facility.

“Plan” means a pollution prevention plan (as described in subsection 56(1) of the Act).

“Pollution prevention,” as defined in section 3 of the Act, means the use of processes, practices, materials, products, substances or energy that avoid or minimize the creation of pollutants and waste and reduce the overall risk to the environment or human health.

“Techniques” includes both the facility equipment used in the process and how the process is operated. It includes, but is not limited to, matters such as the number of employees, their qualifications and experience, working methods, training, supervision and the manner in which the process is performed. It also includes the design, construction, lay-out and maintenance of the facility.

2. Person or class of persons required to prepare and implement a plan

  • (1) This Notice applies to any person or class of persons who, on the date of publication of the Final Notice and anytime thereafter,
    • (a) operates a facility in the electricity sector which at any time uses hydrazine at a concentration of greater than 10% (% by weight); and
    • (b) as a result of the uses mentioned in paragraph 2(1)(a), operates a facility that releases effluent at any final discharge point of the facility that contains hydrazine.
  • (2) The Notice applies to any person or class of persons who is the successor operator or the assigned operator of the persons identified in subsection 2(1).
  • (3) Despite subsection 2(1), the Notice does not apply to any person or class of persons who operates a facility that maintains an effluent, under normal operating conditions, that at all final discharge points has a concentration of hydrazine that is less than or equal to the following levels from the date the Notice is published and any time thereafter:
  • 2.6 × 10−3 mg/L if discharged to fresh water; and
  • 2.0 × 10−4 mg/L if discharged to sea water.

The person or class of persons can show proof of this by submitting to the Minister the supporting monitoring and sampling data.

3. Activities in relation to which the plan is to be prepared

The Minister requires any person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to prepare and implement a plan in relation to the storage, use or release of hydrazine.

4. Factors to consider in preparing the plan

The Minister requires any person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to consider the following factors when preparing the plan:

  • (1) Hydrazine was classified as a toxic substance under paragraphs 64(a) and 64(c) of the Act and was added to the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of the Act on September 20, 2012. The final Screening Assessment Report concluded that hydrazine is entering or may enter the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term effect on the environment or its biological diversity, and that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health. The final Screening Assessment Report for hydrazine is available online at www.ec.gc.ca/ese-ees.
  • (2) The environmental risk management objective for hydrazine is to achieve and maintain a total hydrazine concentration in effluent at each final discharge point of the facility that is less than or equal to the specified levels as per subsection 2(3) of this Notice.
  • (3) To give priority to pollution prevention activities, by utilizing techniques or best available technologies as a means to address the release of hydrazine to the aquatic environment.
  • (4) All effluent streams from industrial processes and cooling systems, all surface drainage streams, and all ground-water-sourced effluent streams that can contain hydrazine under normal operating conditions should be addressed by the plan. The plan should include a map identifying and labeling each final discharge point, as well as a description of each final discharge point.
  • (5) Conduct sampling of effluent for analysis for each final discharge point of the facility that contains hydrazine and prior to any dilution by receiving water.
    • (a) Sampling should be conducted for each final discharge point of the facility and should at all times be representative of the highest expected concentration of hydrazine resulting from normal operating conditions. Although the sampling frequency may be aligned with existing reporting requirements under other jurisdictions, samples should be collected and analyzed a minimum of four times per year for each final discharge point.
    • (b) The analysis of hydrazine should be performed by a laboratory that is accredited under the International Organization for Standardization ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard titled “General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories,” as amended from time to time. The laboratory analysis should be performed according to an analytical method that achieves a detection limit for hydrazine at or below the levels specified in subsection 2(3) of this Notice. Analysis of samples can also be performed by an equivalent laboratory that is not ISO accredited, but that uses an analytical method that meets the following criteria:
      • (i) Method detection limit:
        • 2.6 μg/L or lower for freshwater samples
        • 0.2 μg/L or lower for sea water samples
      • (ii) Accuracy: 30% minimum
