In attendance were largely landowners connected to the project, Encana is required to consult with residents 1.8 km of the pads.

Conerns included noise, traffic, light, and dust caused by it.

“We do a number of things to alleviate those concerns, which includes everything from dust control, sound suppression panels, watering or dust control to minimize activities during certain times if possible,” Lieverse says.

“We try to keep our big trucks off the road when school buses are on, as an example.”
