Reducing Risk to Groundwater

January 12, 2016

The Partnership selected a site with low soil permeability to further reduce risk to groundwater. While adhering strictly to all requirements for secondary containment and handling of stored process fluids, the Partnership will also establish a comprehensive groundwater monitoring network within and around its project site. Additionally, the Partnership is a participant in a regional groundwater monitoring initiative championed by the Northeast Capital Industrial Association, where monitoring and data related to groundwater throughout the Alberta Industrial Heartland is maintained to ensure groundwater quality standards.
