Parsons has supported the Government of Canada, the Yukon Government, First Nations, and the Town of Faro in remediating the Faro Mine site since 2016. Under the contract, Parsons provides site management services including overall occupational health and safety; environmental and geotechnical management; project management; construction management; and procurement services for the work that will be completed to implement the remediation plan. Parsons is also responsible for the care and maintenance of the site.
Ongoing environmental monitoring is being conducted to track risks and determine if conditions are changing. Where monitoring identifies environmental change is occurring, adaptive management is undertaken (including putting new infrastructure in place) to prevent conditions from further impacting the environment or the health and safety of community members.
