Update Regarding Community Odour Issues
After conducting investigations throughout the week, Pacific Coast Terminals has confirmed that components of our facility’s water treatment system are the likely sources of recent community odour issues.
Assessments over the past week have resulted in identifying a higher-than-normal level of odour from water treatment systems at our site and as a result, our team has been working closely with Metro Vancouver and third-party experts to investigate and pinpoint the issues.
We take this situation extremely seriously and are working around the clock to remediate the elevated odour levels.
In addition, we have engaged third-party specialists to assist and expedite the remediation process and can confirm that the odour is organic in nature and poses no health risk to the public.
As we work to resolve this issue, there may be brief surges of odour emitted at certain points in the remediation process.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and regret our contribution to the odour issues we’ve all been experiencing this week. As a member of the community, we’re committed to resolving this issue as quickly as possible and will provide updates once we have more information to share.
