At 7:35AM this morning, the Town of Cochrane issued a media release confirming that wastewater was no longer entering the river and was being contained on site.
Since this time, our onsite incident response team has advised that this information was inaccurate. Although the discharge has been significantly reduced, wastewater is continuing to flow into the Bow River at this time.
The onsite incident response team continues to work to mitigate the impacts. The top priority remains ensuring the continued provision of safe drinking water and implementing all necessary measures to stop the flow.
This is a complex and quickly evolving situation and we appreciate your cooperation as we continue to respond.
Please continue to avoid the area.
