Quality is at the core of sustainable solutions and therefore Legacy EMC uses up-to-date technology, infrastructure and equipment to complete projects.

EERSTE RIVER MASTER PLAN

VICTORIA ROAD SETBACK LINE

LegacyEMC acted as the environmental practitioners for the ‘Eerste River Master Plan’ project, which spanned an approx. 2km stretch of the Eerste River from the Piet Retief Street Bridge to the Distell Cricket Field, in Stellenbosch.

The ‘Master Plan’ includes the planning, design and construction of pedestrian and cycle paths, a pedestrian bridge as well as bank stabilisation and flood alleviation measures. The project also includes the phased removal of specific trees and the reintroduction of suitable locally indigenous tree, shrub and wetland species to replace the removed trees.

Our scope of work was to undertake a Basic Assessment and associated Public Participation Process, as the project required Environmental Authorisation in terms of NEMA.

LegacyEMC were tasked with determining and submitting an application for the ad-hoc adoption of a setback line for the installation of a fibre optic duct within the Victoria Road road-reserve between Bakoven and Llandudno.

The installation of the duct occurs within 100m of the high-water mark and within 32m of watercourses, triggering the need for environmental authorisation. However, in this case the competent authority saw fit to adopt the setback line determined by our office, thus permitting the installation of the duct behind the setback line without environmental authorisation.

ASHTON WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY

OVERSTRAND HOUSING

LegacyEMC acted as the environmental practitioners for the Waste Management Licence (WML) Application for the Ashton Waste Management Facility (AWMF). The WML for the existing AWMF had lapsed and for operations to continue, a full Scoping and Environmental Impact Assessment Processes was required for authorisation in terms of the National Environmental Management Waste Act (NEMWA).

Our scope of work was to undertake a full Scoping and Environmental Impact Assessment Processes and associated Public Participation Process, in terms of NEMWA.

LegacyEMC acted as the environmental practitioners for a number of development applications for serviced residential erven in the Overstrand municipal area. The development of the serviced erven for Stanford and Masakhane required full Scoping and Environmental Impact Assessment Processes to be undertaken.

Our scope of work was to undertake a full Scoping and Environmental Impact Assessment Processes and associated Public Participation Process, in terms of NEMA.

ACTIVE FOUNDRY CC – WASTE CLASSIFICATION & ASSESSMENT REPORT

LegacyEMC acted as the environmental practitioners for the classification of a waste stream generated at the Active Foundry site. The classification was done in terms of the Waste Classification and Management Regulations, 2013 (Government Notice R634 in Government Gazette 36784 of 23 August 2013) published in terms of the NEMWA, as well as in accordance with SANS 10234:2008 Globally Harmonized System of classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS).

As the generated waste was to be disposed of to landfill, it was therefore also assessed in terms of the National Norms and Standards for the Assessment of Waste for Landfill Disposal (Government Notice R635 in Government Gazette 36784 of 23 August 2013) published in terms of the NEMWA.

The conclusion was that the waste stream be classified as a Waste Type 3, based on the findings of the assessment results, and that a Class C containment barrier is required as per GNR636.
