This report provides an overview of the Alberta Oil Sands Community Exposure and Health Effects Assessment Program Main Study. The report describes the population and personal distribution of exposure to airborne chemicals and particulates in the city of Fort McMurray. Using a personal exposure...
The purpose of this study was to determine the acute and subacute toxicity of bitumen to rainbow trout. The bitumen was collected along the banks of the Athabasca River downstream of Fort McMurray during 1984. Prior to experimentation, the bitumen was fractionated in water at 35°C, using an...
The information presented here reviews what is currently known of fish ecology and production of the Athabasca Basin, and includes discussions of fish production, sport and commercial use of fish populations, and alternative opportunities for recreational fishing in the rivers of the Athabasca...
Review of Health Effects of Naphthenic Acids: Data Gaps and Implications for Understanding Human Health RiskDownload
Oil sands mining involves removal of water from the Athabasca River basin in northeastern Alberta. Water produced during the extraction of bitumen from oil sands is referred to as oil sands process water (OSPW). Information on the likelihood of human exposure to OSPW derived naphthenic acids...
A climatological air quality dispersion was developed which provides more powerful analyses capabilities than are avaiIable in traditional COM-type models. The model incorporates a time series approach to satisfy identified user needs. The three components of the model are: the time series file...
The colonization of limestone gravel, limestone gravel + organic matter, and limestone gravel from a river bed was followed over time in order to compare two possible stream reclamation substrates with a control (river gravel). After nine weeks of colonization by benthic micro- and...
Syncrude Canada Ltd. is producing synthetic crude oil from a surface mine on the eastern portion of Syncrude Lease 17. Hardy Associates was commissioned to describe and map the vegetation types and to assess forest productivity on the adjacent Lease 22 in order to add to Syncrude's baseline...
Longitudinal study of personal adjustment and social conditions in the Fort McMurray area Vol I: Research designDownload
The purpose of Phase 1 was to establish a research design for a longitudinal study to identify and explain the relationships between social and personal adjustment of people in the oil sands region. The research design was to be implemented in Fort McMurray and to be applicable to any resource...
In March 1976, the first in a series of intensive field studies was carried out in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area in northeastern Alberta to examine the fine structure of the atmosphere and dispersion characteristics under winter conditions. The study comprised...
Catalogue of Technologies for Reducing the Environmental Impact of Fine Tailings from Oil Sands ProcessingDownload
A catalogue containing 22 technologies for reducing the environmental impact of fine tailings derived from oil sand processing has been assembled. The simple format which was developed as part of this study consisted of a spreadsheet outline of the technologies and a process summary for each...
