Data are sufficient and adequate to calculate only a Soil Quality Guideline for Environmental health (SQGE), which is less than the existing interim soil quality criterion (CCME, 1991) for this land use. Therfore the SQGE becomes the soil quality guideline, which supersedes the interim soil quality criterion for this land use.

In-site specific situations where the size and/or location of commercial and industrial land uses may impact primary, secondary or tertiary consumers, the soil and food ingestion guideline is recommended as the Soil Quality Guideline for Environmental health (SQGE)

For guidelines derived prior to 2004, differentiation between soil texture (coarse/fine) is not applicable.
