Dunvegan Gardens Facing Multiple Orders After Evidence of Unsafe Water, Electric, and Heating Systems
Multiple orders under the Safety Codes Act are being handed down to Dunvegan Gardens.

On April 12, 2018, officers inspected the area and found evidence of contaminated water, and electric and heating system issues in their greenhouse.

“The water supply to the public restrooms as well as the staff shower facility, kitchen facility, and the system in the greenhouse are a risk to human health and safety,” said Brad McMurdo, Acting Director of Planning and Development.

He says the potable water was contaminated with animal feces, plant fertilizers, groundwater, and other unknown contaminants at this time.

“[It] has the potential to negatively impact human health through handwashing, water consumption, and mist,” added McMurdo.

Officers also found multiple hazards when it came to the electric system in the greenhouse as well as the coal-fired boiler and propane systems.

Under the orders, Dunvegan must disable the water system and greenhouse electric and heating systems immediately, and can’t have any public access to the greenhouse.

If these steps are taken, staff will still be allowed to enter the area to take care of their animals and plants.

“Depending on how the next few days progress, there is the option to allow the retail component to continue – provided that the washrooms are closed down, the greenhouse is closed down, and other options for in terms of washrooms and sanitary facilities are brought in,” said McMurdo.

Fort McMurray News tried contacting VP of Operations Brad Friesen but didn’t receive a response.
