A pipeline network northeast of Edmonton, the site of an oil spill this week has been reopened. But the Energy Resource Conservation board says the pumping station that was the cause of the leak of 230 thousand litres of oil near Elk Point remains shut down. Enbridge was allowed to open it's pipeline after promising to inspect other points in the network that have similar gaskets to the one that failed. The company also has to come up with a plan to ensure the long term safety of the gaskets. The leak occurred in a field and didn't get into any standing water or waterways.
It's the second significant spill in Alberta this month.
