By Bob Weber THE CANADIAN PRESS The Alberta Energy Regulator has warned Imperial Oil about more wastewater problems at its Kearl oilsands mine in northern Alberta. The regulator has issued a notice of non-compliance to the company after chemicals associated with oilsands tailings were found at an off-site well at levels that exceed provincial guidelines. “In light of the exceedance of sulphate levels in the off-site well, we have issued a notice of non-compliance to Imperial for failing to control industrial runoff,” says a notice from the regulator obtained by The Canadian Press. “This is not related to a tailings pond or the (environmental protection order) issued against Imperial in February.” The document says sulphates have been detected in a well near a mine overburden disposal
