Three Calgary companies are in hot water after a hazardous substance was allegedly deposited on City of Calgary property.
A release from the Province of Alberta states that the companies, and one director from each, are facing a number of environmental charges as a result of hexavalent chromium contaminating an excavated fill on or around April 13, 2017.
Loutfi Aboumrad and Superior Concrete Systems Ltd. have been charged with five counts, Ziad El-Bittar and Alberta Chrome & Grinding Ltd. with three counts, and Hussein Amery and Amara Investments Corp. with four counts under the Environment Protection and Enhancement Act.

“Alberta Environment and Parks focuses on education, prevention and enforcement to ensure all Albertans continue to enjoy a clean and healthy environment,” the release states.
“When individuals, companies, or municipalities fail to comply with environmental legislation, Environment and Parks has a range of options, depending on the offence, to ensure compliance.”
All three directors are expected to appear in court on March 2, 2020.
