Teck Trail Operations is apologizing for an alarm that rang in the construction area of the No. 1 Acid Plant late Tuesday night.

The temporary SO2 alarm, with a very low threshold well below permit levels, is installed to ensure the safety of the construction workers onsite during the day, explained Catherine Adair, Teck’s community relations leader.

“Unfortunately, yesterday it was not disabled at the end of shift and when it sounded overnight it was not turned off quickly,” she said. “

“There was no impact on adjacent plants or outside of the operation, no personnel mustered nor were there any injuries.”

Starting Wednesday the alarm will be disabled after the day shifts are complete.

Teck Trail Operations does encourage anyone with a noise complaint to call there Community and Environment Feedback line answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 364-4817.
