Remediation at APEC 1 Site Expected to Resume Next Week

Additional testing at the APEC 1 one site will push back remediation efforts until next week. Work crews are examining several procedures related to how to best cap the well. Work had been expected to resume Friday, however, additional time is needed before entering the next phase due to the testing.

When work resumes, an odour of gas may be detected. If residents at any time detect the smell of gas, they are asked to immediately call 9-1-1.
