This release was issued under a previous government.

The company, also known as Moore’s Industrial Services, was penalized $30,000 for improper disposal of waste in relation to an investigation into incidents that occurred between June 11 and June 13, 2016. Five other charges under the act against the company were withdrawn.

Most of the penalty is directed towards a creative sentencing order. To this end, the Nose Creek Watershed Partnership and the Bow River Basin Council will receive $25,000 to update and refine the wetland inventory for the Nose Creek Watershed. The sentence also included a directive to publish details of the offence and how this event led the responsible party to develop a water cut-off device that could prevent similar future incidents from occurring.

Alberta Environment and Parks focuses on education, prevention and enforcement to ensure all Albertans enjoy a clean and healthy environment. The ministry enforces environmental regulations when individuals or companies fail to comply with legislation.
