Information Update

Plume Location

Most recently reported location: The front of the sediment path was observed today upstream of Pelican Rapids.

We continue to track the sediment path by helicopter, and are taking samples in advance of, in the middle of, and behind it. The data will help us to monitor changes in the sediment path and in local water quality.

Testing and analysis

We are conducting daily sampling at 7 locations between the site and the Athabasca River, including both upstream and downstream locations.

Remediation

We have initiated remediation planning work for the  zone in the upper Apetowun Creek area. This work will begin once the creek is frozen to ensure remediation equipment does not damage the river banks and benthic environment.
