Teck’s Response to Coal Debris on Highway 3

Council met with representatives of Teck Coal Ltd. at a special meeting on February 5, 2019 to discuss the impact of Teck’s coal hauling operations between Elkview and Coal Mountain. At that meeting Teck had committed to investigate options on how to mitigate the impact to the community and provide follow up responses to Mayor Wilks.

As promised by Mayor Wilks to share Teck’s response with the community, a media release was issued today outlining Teck’s response and Council’s concern regarding Teck’s adherence to their permit issued by the Ministry of Energy Mines and Petroleum. To learn more, please view Council Meeting Video from that meeting or contact Mayor Wilks at mayor@sparwood.ca.
