UPDATE: Residents return home after Pembina Pipeline situation near Valleyview

UPDATE: Residents who had to leave their homes Wednesday because of the situation on the Pembina Pipeline Northern Pipeline System were allowed to go home on Thursday. In a statement from the company, they did extensive air monitoring and worked with the Alberta Energy Regulator to determine whether the area was safe.
