AWA News Release: Pipeline Spill into Red Deer River Points to Huge Concerns With Pipeline Regulation

June 8, 2012

A pipeline leak north of Sundre, Alta. spilled between 1000 and 3000 barrels (160,000-475,000 litres) of light sour crude oil into the Red Deer River yesterday, a major drinking water source for southern Alberta, via Jackson Creek, which contains threatened bull trout. This news comes only weeks after a pipeline leak in northern Alberta spilled approximately 5,000 barrels (800,000 litres) of oil into surrounding peat wetlands.
