The province on Friday provided a glimpse into its investigation of the March 25 spill, saying the samples of the company’s undiluted industrial waste-water were lethal to fingerling rainbow trout. These water samples, however, are not comparable to the fluid that poured into the river because they do not account for dilution. Alberta is still investigating whether diluted samples are harmful.

EDMONTON – The Alberta government has given Suncor one month to fix problems with one of its wastewater treatment ponds, two years after the problem was discovered.
The company was prohibited from releasing water from the pond — the final step in Suncor’s treatment process — into the Athabasca River in March 2011. Toxicity in the water was found to exceed allowable limits.
“They had to close the discharge outlet, which they did,” said Alberta Environment spokeswoman Jessica Potter.
