Rationale and scope:

Enbridge had planned and begun remediation work activity at three contaminated sites in the vicinity of Swan Lake First Nation in the fall of 2019. These sites are part of what Enbridge has called the "Swan Lake Portfolio." Through engagement with the community, Enbridge had committed to complete remediation of five sites within the vicinity of Swan Lake First Nation by 2021. Work included remedial excavations at REM-0257 spill site, REM-0257 Associated site and REM-0242. Reclamation work was initially planned to occur at a site that was remediated in 2018 via excavation and disposal and application of in-situ amendments (REM-0102), however due to wet conditions, that work will occur spring 2020, at the same time as reclamation of the REM-0257 and REM-0242 sites. As no work was occurring at REM-0102 at the time of inspection, that site was not inspected. There were heritage resource concerns identified at one of the sites and an archaeologist must be present during the ground disturbance activities. The Inspection focused on handling contaminated soil and groundwater, air quality monitoring, sampling procedures, and protection of heritage resources.
