Environmental recommendations for wood preservation facilities: acknowledgements


The 2013 TRD was collaboratively updated by Environment Canada, Wood Preservation Canada (WPC) and Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada. The guidance and assistance provided by the representatives of these organizations are greatly appreciated.

This manual is based and largely relies on the information contained in the preservative-specific TRDs issued in April 1988. Those documents were co-authored by Dr. D.E. Konasewich and Dr. F.A. Henning of Envirochem Services, whose excellent work is acknowledged.

Special thanks are extended to Ian Macdonald from WESA Inc., all WPC members, and personnel from Environment Canada who contributed to the revision of the 2013 TRD and shared information on current industry practices, best management practices and best available technologies.
