FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. - Work is underway to determine the effects of a discharge of water from an outfall pond at a Suncor (TSX: SU) facility in northern Alberta.
Alberta Environment says in a release that a leak of what it calls process-affected water happened early Monday at the plant north of Fort McMurray.
Details were not immediately available on the volume of water that was released, or what it contains.
The department says the discharge was stopped and water samples have been sent to a lab for analysis.
It also says the emergency phase of the response has ended.
