Vernon, B.C. — Tolko Industries Ltd. (Tolko) has submitted the detailed environmental site investigation report for the former Kelowna mill site to B.C.’s Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. As previously noted, the third-party investigation at the site encountered a light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPL) at a test hole located approximately 150 metres away from the lakeshore. Laboratory analysis indicates that this hydrocarbon contamination is consistent with a lubricating oil. This substance was found to be limited to the area around two adjacent test holes. Tolko is planning to have this area remediated in September along with one other small area under the supervision of a third-party Environmental Professional. …Tolko is committed to addressing these contaminants and appreciates the ongoing support and collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy.
