"Another Pipeline Rupture in Spill-Prone Alberta"

"Apache Canada has reported a significant pipeline rupture and spill about 20 kilometres northeast of Zama, Alberta, in the northeast corner of the province."

"A pipeline carrying contaminated waste water to an oil injection disposal well site ruptured on June 1, and spilled an undisclosed amount of waste water into the muskeg.

'We are still investigating the volume spilled right now,' said Apache spokesman, Paul Wyte. 'The line was shut in and the spill has been contained and we have already begun remediation.'"
