The purpose of a hazard assessment and report is to assess the nature, extent, probability, and potential effect of seven identified hazards and, if necessary, provide mitigative measures. The seven hazards reviewed are:
- Inundation by Flood Waters
- Mountain Stream Erosion and Avulsion
- Debris Flows and Torrents
- Debris Floods
- Snow Avalanches
- Rock Falls
Valley Geo will complete the hazard report and the documentation of the possible mitigative measures. Once completed, the report is registered on title as a Section 219 Covenant. This Covenant ties the report to the property so that all future parties are aware of the hazards.
Valley Geo has completed a multitude of hazard assessments, ranging from having only one, to several of the above-mentioned hazards. All assessments vary in its requirements, but they typically involve a desktop review of all relevant documents, a soil investigation with a review of the neighbouring area, a slope stability analysis, and the final report.
