Leaking Alberta tar sands
The photo here shows a site that has been seeping tar over 30 acres of swampy forest for the past nine weeks.
The Toronto Star reported there were four spills in the last few months.
Our Calgary partner, LH Innovations, is working hard to get our equipment onsite in the Alberta tar sands.
We can help clean up the produced water, and the leaks too.
Cleaning up the tailings ponds
We can especially help with the huge tar sands tailings ponds, which currently hold more than one billion litres of toxic tar sands waste. Government documents confirm the massive ponds are seeping into and contaminating local groundwater.
There's not much time: the industry is running out of tailings ponds, which are really lakes of highly toxic water.
In 2009, the government told tar sands operators they had to "slow the growing volumes of fluid tailings and the proliferation of tailings ponds." (Desmog Canada)
Time to act, and we are there.
