The incident occurred at the company’s Line 3 pump station and involved approximately 150 cubic metres of oil. The CER says there is no risk to public safety.
According to Enbridge, the majority of the spill was contained to the company’s property with limited oil migrating to adjacent municipal land.
No watercourses are affected and precautionary wildlife measures are in place, says the CER.
Surface cleanup is underway, with the removal of contaminated soil to follow.
An officer with CER is on site to monitor and assess the company’s clean-up. The Enbridge Line 3 Indigenous Advisory Monitoring Committee has also been notified of the spill and is being kept up to date.
The CER says all federal and provincial directives due to the COVID-19 pandemic are being followed.
