Pelech Inspector, Parkland Region, Alberta Environment (Department) to issue a Reclamation Certificate for a well located at legal description 6-16-49-3 W5M.

[2] On September 28, 1999 the Board acknowledged receipt of the Notice of Appeal from Mr. Parry and, at that time requested a copy of all correspondence, documents, and materials relative to the appeal from the Department.

[3] According to standard practice, on September 28, 1999, the Board wrote to the Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB) and the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (AEUB) asking whether this matter had been the subject of a hearing or review under their respective Boards' legislation. A reply was subsequently received from the AEUB on October 13, 1999 stating that they did not hold any hearing or review under their legislation.

In this same letter, the Board asked Mr. Parry if he wished to have a mediation meeting under section 11 of the Environmental Appeal Board Regulation(1) and if there were any other persons who may have an interest in the appeal. On this same date, the Board wrote to the Department asking for comments on participating in a mediation meeting and if they were aware of any other persons who may have an interest in the appeal.

"Pursuant to our telephone conversation I am confirming with you that 362107 Alberta Inc. has decided to withdraw our appeal and attempt to resolve the situation through other methods with both the land owner and inspector involved".
