The gravel pit’s approval expired on November 1, 2009, and Kingkorp Ltd., formerly known as Calistar Construction Services Ltd., never obtained the necessary registration to continue to operate the pit. The pit cannot be lawfully operated without a registration and therefore must be reclaimed. A site visit by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development in March confirmed that the gravel pit has not been reclaimed.

Under the order, Kingkorp Ltd. must submit to Environment and Sustainable Resource Development:

  • a reclamation plan;
  • a schedule of implementation of the plan;
  • a final reclamation report; and
  • an application for a reclamation certificate.
Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development focuses on education, prevention and enforcement to ensure all Albertans continue to enjoy a clean and healthy environment. When individuals or companies fail to comply with legislation, a number of options are available depending on the offence to ensure compliance with environmental regulations. Environmental protection orders are issued under Alberta’s environmental legislation to ensure immediate action is taken to correct a situation.
