- Shoreline cleanup continues, using several techniques, including low pressure washing, vegetation trimming and raking, and removal of debris.
- Cleanup of the primary focus area is steadily progressing in Division 1, with approximately 47 percent of the shoreline cleaned.
- Water sampling and analysis is continuing.
This reminds me of the Facebook post I saw recently from someone affected by the clean up process. I'll post that in another episode of this blog. The editorial comments I may make will shed light on my viewpoint on this event as it directly relates to the use of innovations in the solution to a disaster like this one.
As the story unfolds, and those affected come to the face of Husky, there is this action:
And there is this reaction from Husky: (from Husky website)
- An insurance clinic was held in Prince Albert on Aug. 20 to facilitate claims.
Just an observation on my part, that comes from a few conversations with experienced executives: "the fact that a claims center was initiated so early in the process, speaks to Husky's realization that this is a real disaster, not just an incident".

Moving away from the specifics of Prince Albert to the source of the pipeline break is this article from CBC. And, I ask, "Does anyone think this will be the last oil spill in Canada?"
Over n out until next blog.
