Earlier today, the City of Grande Prairie advised residents of a release into the wetlands adjacent to the Lakeland Off Leash Dog Park.
In a Facebook post they said, "We are advising users to not allow their dogs into the water at this time. Please avoid the area if possible."
Around 4:03 p.m., The City was able to confirm the release was a hydrocarbon based product. Animals and people could become sick if they come in contact with the water. Caution tape and signage were installed in the affected area.
The City is currently following up with regulatory agencies to determine the next steps.
