By using the AER’s approved CFS facilities operators, they will be able to safely store and monitor fluids for reuse. This will result in more water staying in Alberta’s rivers and lakes, and also reduce the truck traffic associated with water hauling and fluid disposal.
As the AER works through the CFS project, it is seeking municipal input on the following:
