Coaldale Town Office Closed After Soil Contamination Discovered

 
 

COALDALE - The Coaldale Town Office was closed on Friday as a precaution after town officials learned of soil contamination under the building.

 

The building was built on the site of a former gas station more than 30 years ago and a report from an Environmental firm warned of unacceptably high levels of certain contaminants in the soil.

 

Follow up information shows the staff were not in immediate danger since the contaminants would be at a considerable depth under the concrete pad where the building was constructed.

 

The report has identified a number of concerns and the town will be investigating them fully and working with Alberta occupational Health and Safety. They expect to receive more detailed information within two weeks.

 

Mayor Kim Craig says "this situation could potentially have serious consequences down the road. Council and administration need to make sure we’re ready for any eventuality, up to and including moving to a new Town office if that’s required. Again, we will do everything that needs to be done to ensure the safety of Town staff and the residents of Coaldale."


He adds when they get more information, they will have some very serious decisions to make.
