We would like to thank landowners, area residents and recreational users for your continued support and patience during our response and clean-up efforts. We recognize that the release has had an impact on the community, wildlife and environment, and for this, we sincerely apologize.
Landowners and Area Residents
Addressing landowner and resident concerns is a high priority. If you are a landowner or area resident and have questions, please call our community response line at 1-866-670-8073 or email email@example.com.
Wildlife and Environment
The protection of wildlife has been a key part of Plains’ response approach. Wildlife mitigation measures were rapidly deployed with greater emphasis in areas where wildlife had the most potential to come into contact with contaminated oil, vegetation and water. Plains worked closely with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) in the handling and reporting of oil-impacted wildlife. As the clean-up activities have been completed, all wildlife deterrents have been removed from the remediated segments and monitoring activities have concluded.
Throughout the clean-up efforts, Plains, in coordination with ESRD and an independent third-party, monitored and tested the water quality between the release point and downstream of the Dickson Dam since June 8, 2012. The water sampling program has transitioned to the long-term monitoring plan. Water quality reports are available online at http://environment.ablerta.ca/04036.html.
Any questions or concerns related to wildlife, water, or the remediation efforts can be directed to the ESRD Environment hotline at 1-800-222-6514.
