[ARCHIVED] Message from the Mayor about Hwy 2 Incident

Hwy 2

]Message from the Mayor about Hwy 2 Incident] 

Please be aware our public works department has been contacted by the RCMP and Alberta Environment about the truck crashing into Mosquito creek off of Highway 2.

Diesel fuel from the truck and part of the load of fishmeal has entered the creek.

Our Operations Manager, Barry Sturrock, has confirmed that “We are not presently drawing water from, or have been for over a week, from the creek and this should pose no risk to our water supply. Alberta Environment will keep us informed about this matter and the remediation that will have to take place. We do not expect to have to draw from the creek until next spring.”

Thank you to all of our first responders assisting in this incident, stay safe out there.

Jen Handley

Mayor, Town of Nanton
