Was out around Edson area on Tuesday. Spent the last hour on Sundance Creek. Decided to take a peek on the west side of the hwy. About 30 yards from the bridge I came across a small stream(pool) of Chocolate brown sludge mixed with what looked like gasoline. It was running into the creek. Just wondering if anyone knew who I should let know.

Emailed The director for Alberta Environment, Central Alberta Division. He emailed me back asking for my phone number which I did. A field representative from Spruce Grove phoned me and asked exactly what I saw. He then said that the dept gets a ton of these calls all the time and what it usually is, is natural. I guess there are natural iron deposits which come to the surface mixed with water when it is unusually wet. That's the chocolate brown liquid. The flourescent, rainbow liquid effect(which I thought was gas) is supposedly some sort of iron bacteria, and he gave me some ideas to tell the difference. I'm not sure what to believe, but I will admit I didn't smell gas. He's in the area on Sept. 6th and said he would have a look.
