The contaminated water - containing clay, mud, shale and coal fines - spilled into the river after an onsite water containment pond at the Obed Mountain Mine near Hinton, Alberta, breached on Oct. 31. The sediment plume, travelling at a rate of less than 2km an hour, is currently around 125km (80 miles) upstream of the oil sands production hub of Fort McMurray in the north of the province. Jessica Potter from Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (AESRD) said communities downstream of the mine had been warned not to draw from the river. "We have asked community water treatment plants continue to refrain from using the river as a resource when the plume is going through," she said. The AESRD handed Sherritt an environmental protection order to put in place recovery, management and assessment plans. "We began our testing the morning after this happened and, to date, these samples have indicated that the sediment travelling downstream in the Athabasca River poses no risk Kim Kardashian to human health or safety," said Sean McCaughan, Sherritt's senior vice president, coal. <br>More:

Usa’s ‘necessary Roughness’ Cancelled

Kim Kardashian 2 nod. When the arcade reopened its doors to this renovated space in 2011, the video game-themed bathrooms stole the show.

Cintas Fullscreen The public glass restrooms on the town square in Sulphur Springs, Texas, are No. 3. The small town took a big leap back in 2012 when they debuted two allglass bathrooms on their downtown square, the first of their kind in the nation.

USA TODAY Sports' Week 11 NFL predictions

Created by Kruger and Shapiro, Necessary Roughness wasnt a breakout hit with a big pop culture following for USA. But it developed a loyal audience and has been pretty consistent, ending its three-season run with a respectable average of 4 million viewers.

Yahoo! Japan And Videology Form Strategic Partnership, Deliverin

Still, China's decision to arrange a meeting between Wang and the delegation could be seen as a sign that Beijing remains interested in boosting economic exchanges with Japan. Wang is known as having a good knowledge of Japan. Before becoming one of the four vice ministers in March, Wang was the Communist Party's highest-ranking official of Guangdong Province, the country's major economic powerhouse where thousands of Japanese firms are operating. <br>More:
