Hay River Basin Pollution Investigation – Report release event

Keepers of the Water is working to address concerns brought forward by Traditional Ecological Knowledge holders in Northern Alberta with our partners, Dene Tha First Nation, Beaver First Nation, North Peace Tribal Council and Treaty 8 First Nations of Alberta. 

At our Keepers IX Gathering in 2015, concerns were expressed about the clean-up of pipeline spills. Many thousands of spills have taken place in the Hay River Basin area; these have been spills of oil, diluent, produced water, and combinations of these. Local communities and Traditional Knowledge Holders are concerned about the clean up process after pipeline spills. While in some cases clean up has been certified as ‘complete’ by the Alberta Energy Regulator, ecological effects and residual contamination persist after remediation.

These principles demonstrate that Ottawa is committed to improving the ways in which fossil fuel infrastructure is evaluated. The requirement to consider direct and upstream carbon pollution in regulatory reviews acknowledges a long-standing deficiency in Canada’s regulatory framework for fossil fuel projects.
