Biographical history

The Pollution Control Board was established in 1956 under the Pollution Control Act (SBC 1956, c. 36). Under the Act, the Board had the following powers:

(a) To determine what qualities and properties of water shall constitute a polluted condition;
(b) To prescribe standards regarding the quality and character of the effluent which may be discharged into any of the waters within the area or areas under the jurisdiction of the Board;
(c) To conduct tests and surveys to determine the extent of pollution of any waters within the area or areas under the jurisdiction of the Board;
(d) To examine into all existing or proposed means for the disposal of sewage or other waste materials, or both, and to approve the plans and specifications for such works as are deemed necessary to prevent pollution of the waters of the area or areas;
(e) To notify all persons who discharge effluent into the said waters when the effluent fails to meet the prescribed standards;
(i) To order any person after six months from date of notification, or such longer period as may be determined by the Board, to increase the degree of treatment of the effluent or to alter the manner or point of discharge of the effluent being discharged by such person to bring the effluent up to the prescribed standards;
(g) To order any person who fails to comply with an order issued under clause (i) to cease discharging effluent into any waters in the area as and from a day and time specified in the order.

In 1981 the Board was replaced by the Environmental Appeal Board.
