Nearly 13,000 households were sent letters from Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services this month, asking them to take part in a health assessment because of how close they live — or lived — to an old wood treatment plant.
Domtar was in operation between 1924 and 1987. It used chemicals, including creosote, to treat wood products at its facility north of Yellowhead Trail in Edmonton.
