The shutdown of a section of the Trans Mountain pipeline Saturday — prompted by an odour complaint and discovery of a substance in a ditch — has been traced to a residential home, according to the B.C. Ministry of Environment.

The pipeline was shut down in North Surrey, as crews investigated the odour complaint and the gasoline-like substance. 

The pipeline was turned off as a precautionary measure, according to a statement from Trans Mountain.

However, on Sunday evening a spokesperson for the Ministry of Environment said the odour and substance have been traced to a residential home.

On Saturday night around 11 p.m. PT, Surrey Fire Service responded to a call in the area of Douglas Road and Kalmar Road in North Surrey. They found the petroleum-like product, according to assistant chief Shelley Morris.

Morris had said there was no way for fire officials to verify where the product came from and contacted Trans Mountain.

According to Morris, there is no need to evacuate any residents.

[ad_1]

The Trans Mountain pipeline has been shut down in Surrey, B.C., while crews investigate an odour complaint and a gasoline-like substance found in a ditch.

The pipeline has been turned off as a precautionary measure and the company is monitoring the situation from the air, according to a statement from Trans Mountain.

Surrey Fire Services responded to a call at around 11 p.m. Saturday and found the petroleum-like product, according to Assistant Chief Shelley Morris.

The odour was reported in the area of Douglas Road and Kalmar Road in North Surrey.

Morris said there was no way for fire officials to verify where the product came from, and at that point they contacted Trans Mountain.

« They’ve shut down the gasoline they were transporting to the pipeline until they can ensure that it is not them, » said Morris. 

« They brought all their own resources to the site and they are now in control of the site and doing their investigation. »

According to Morris, there is no need to evacuate any residents at this time.

Trans Mountain said in a statement that their crews have found no evidence the source of the product is their pipeline.
