AltaLink instructs all of its employees and contractors about the need to respect our communities, take care of the natural environment – and to drive responsibly. Some of our expectations include:
- Traffic – Traffic control protocols are implemented to restrict construction traffic. Safe driving habits are practiced, including slowing down to reduce dust, blowing snow and the hazards of flying rocks.
- Noise – Depending on where you are in relation to our construction work, you may hear construction crews. AltaLink monitors noise during construction to ensure it is at an acceptable level. We also notify landowners during periods where other activities, such as helicopter work, may cause increased noise.
- Garbage – We require our employees and contractors to be aware of the environment at all times and to ensure garbage is contained and later removed from the site.
