According to Alberta Environment, the Provincial Court of Alberta in Fort McMurray has fined Suncor Energy Inc. $275,000 for contravening its water approval at the Voyager Upgrader site 20 kilometres north of Fort McMurray.Suncor was charged in September 2010 for failing to follow the water management plan specified by its Water Act approval, which included a requirement to properly manage stormwater (a mixture of rain water and dirt from the construction site). Suncor pled guilty to one count under the Water Act for failing to comply with an approval.

The company has since taken steps to properly manage water at the construction site by following a revised water management plan.
