The headline for this piece is really misleadingly minimalistic. The impact goes way beyond drinking water for area residents. This flows into the Frasier River, and other similar ponds are effecting the Athabasca River, two of the major rivers of Canada. The Frasier along flows from his in the mountains of British Columbia, and runs all the way to Vancouver, through major salmon fishing areas, and into the Straight of Georgia, between Vancouver and Seattle. This impacts the environment, fisheries, spawning areas, wildlife, not to mention poisoning paddlers that may not be getting the reports and paddling the area. See the link.
