Residents impacted by Encana gas leak disappointed with settlement agreement
On November 22nd, 2009, a group of about 15 residents in Tomslake detected a sulfur-like smell coming from a nearby natural gas pipeline operated by Encana. An investigation found that 30,000 cubic metres of natural gas was released into the environment, and that the company had faulty equipment, failed to notify residents of the risk in time, and did not co-ordinate its emergency response with the local RCMP during the incident. But a recent settlement between Encana and the community has those directly impacted by the event asking even more questions.
