Beth Power

MSc, RPBio, PBiol, Approved Professional (Risk)

Beth Power has been an environmental consultant for over 30 years – her practice falls into three main areas: ecological risk assessment, contaminated sediments and science policy/risk communication. Beth tends to work at the interface between owners, developers, the regulatory community, engineers, lawyers and other professions. She is trained in design and facilitation of group processes (e.g., meetings, workshops). Beth has developed and applied ecological risk assessment frameworks in a variety of settings, such as watersheds, mines, oil and gas, ports and harbours, brownfields, and for risk ranking. Beth thrives on supporting clients to address complex, multi-party problems.

Beth is appointed to the “Roster of Approved Professionals” (Contaminated Sites Approved Professional, as a Risk-based Standards Approved Professional). In recent years, she was on the CSAP Board of Directors and Chair of the Technical Review Committee. Beth has led risk assessment work that has resulted in a number of Certificates of Compliance under BC’s Contaminated Sites Regulation, as well as making successful submissions as an Approved Professional. She is a member of the Science Advisory Board for Contaminated Sites in BC. To see Beth in action click here.
