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...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Progress Report #3. Revegetation of roadsidesDownload
Introduction This report deals with roadside revegetation and is the third in a series of reports on the revegetation of non-cultivated disturbed areas in Alberta. On roadsides, like pipelines and unlike powerlines there is no question whether or not' revegetation is required. The main problem...
This reports covering the results of the 1977 research, adds significantly to the earlier findings. It is always difficult to predict long term plant responses on only a few years of data; in this case, only two years. Climatically the two summers (May - August) were very similar, with the mean...
Human system Alberta oil sands environmental research program 1975-1980: An integration and synthesis of research resultsDownload
Commercial exploitation of the Athabasca oil sands deposit had transformed Fort McMurray between 1961 and 1980, from a a small and remote northern community of 1200 people into Alberta's eighth largest city with 27 000 residents. This research project was to describe, ananlyse, and interpret the...
The calibrated DOSTOC, NUSTOC and UNSTOC models from 1989 were used effectively to simulate measured 1990 Athabasca River water quality. Changes in effluent loadings at the two pulp mills and an increase in river flows in the lower Athabasca Basin accounted for some noticeable improvements in...
When evaluating this data, lethality (i.e. death of the organism) is the symptom being observed. Acutely lethal refers to a sample killing 50% of a population after 96 hours exposure. 1. The dike filter drainage was found to be acutely toxic to both rainbow trout and brook sticklebacks. The...
This report examines the differences in health outcomes across the province and compares the Northern River Basin Study area with the other areas of the province and examines possible relationships between health outcomes and environmental contaminants. The report includes a series of regional...
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 philosophy of the Study as envisaged at the outset, is to obtain the maximum useful input from all those who might be affected in any way. The basis is complete disclosure by the Consultant Group of all relevant material and ideas. In order to provide the necessary background, technical...
Syncrude Canada Limited’s Fort McMurray oi1 sands mining operations has been operating under the concept of zero discharge and total containment of wastewaters since start up in 1978. During this period a considerable volume of contaminated water has been assimulated in a large on-site tailings...
