The Alberta Oil Sands Community Exposure and Health Effects Assessment Program was modeled after the USEPA TEAM approach. The TEAM approach is based on four fundamental characteristics: direct measurement of all routes of exposure (breathing, ingestion, and skin contact), direct measurement of...
Technical Support Document for the Regional Sustainable Development Strategy for the Athabasca Oil Sands AreaDownload
Alberta's environmental and natural resource management systems are designed to make sure the environmental impact of development is minimised, and the air, land, surface water and drinkable groundwater all meet provincial guidelines. In addition, they are used to ensure disturbed areas are...
The Honourable Mr. Yurko has requested the Conservation and Utilization Committee to establish an interdepartmental task force or project team with additional membership from the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry and others, if necessary, to define our applied research proposal which the...
Includes sections outlining the requirements of: • Environmental impact to tar sands development • The Water Resources Act with specific reference to tar sands development • The Clean Air Act with specific reference to tar sands development • The Clean Water Act with specific reference to tar...
Five sampling surveys were conducted on the waters of the Athabasca River and its tributaries during the winter of 1969 - 1970. Samples were taken to analyze the river waters for chemical composition and bacteriological constituents on a regular basis. Loadings of Biochemical Oxygen Demanding...
The Athabasca River serves as a source of water supply and a receiving stream for the wastes of two major industries and several communities. This report presents the summary of water quality in the Athabasca River during six sampling surveys (including a site at Fort McMurray, Tar Island, above...
Physical and chemical analyses of spent sand indicate that this material is very infertile. The spent sand samples analysed had an average pH of 7.2 and low Na content indicating that there was no residual problem resulting from the NaOH used in the oil production process. Freshly processed...
This remaining part of the report deals with the theoretical aspects of the reactions between carbon dioxide and tailings.
Some methods for treating tar sands tailings: Part 1 - laboratory application of CO2 process and related testing of type "X" treatmentDownload
This report concerns some methods whereby the liquid waste from plants using the Clark hot water process to extract bitumen from tar sands is rendered clean. This report describes some novel experiments on liquid tailings from the G. C. O. S. plant, which may lead to an economically feasible...
Some chemical and physical properties of soil materials associated with the reclamation of mined tar sands areasDownload
This document consists of two tables providing chemical and physical properties of soil, peat, overburden, spent sand and lean tar sand from Syncrude and Suncor.
