April 15, 2013 – The
Government of Alberta has issued an environmental protection order against
Kingkorp Ltd. for failing to conserve and reclaim a gravel pit in the Entwistle
area, about 100 kilometres west of Edmonton.

The
Government of Alberta has issued an environmental protection order against
Kingkorp Ltd. for failing to conserve and reclaim a gravel pit in the Entwistle
area, approximately 100 kilometres west of Edmonton.

The
gravel pit’s approval expired on Nov. 1, 2009, and Kingkorp Ltd., formerly
known as Calistar Construction Services Ltd., never obtained the necessary
registration to continue to operate the pit. The pit cannot be lawfully
operated without a registration and therefore must be reclaimed. A site visit
by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development in March confirmed
that the gravel pit has not been reclaimed.

Advertisment

Under the
order, Kingkorp Ltd. must submit to Environment and Sustainable Resource
Development:

  • a
    reclamation plan

  • a
    schedule of implementation of the plan

  • a final
    reclamation report

  • an
    application for a reclamation certificate

When
individuals or companies fail to comply with legislation, a number of options
are available depending on the offence to ensure compliance with environmental
regulations. Environmental protection orders are issued under Alberta’s environmental
legislation to ensure immediate action is taken to correct a situation.
