The Alberta government has issued an enforcement order to ensure that groundwater contamination on the site of a Bruderheim chemical plant is appropriately addressed.

Although the plant has not been in service since 2006, a functioning groundwater recovery system is required to ensure on-site contaminated groundwater is removed and treated. The recovery system in place has not been operational since approvals for the plant were transferred to Harold Jahn and his company, Heartland Industrial Park Inc., in 2011. Government has made multiple attempts to resolve the matter over the past two years, but the contamination issue remains unresolved.

The enforcement order requires Jahn and the company to submit and implement a decommissioning and reclamation plan for the plant and a monitoring plan for the site’s groundwater. The order sets out due dates for each plan, beginning January 4, 2013.

  1. Feel sorry for Heartland Industrial Park, they just inherited a huge problem, hope they got a great price off the real estate because they are going to lose out with this enforcement plan they have to implement.
