What is Effluent? – Presentation
September 27, 2021

My initial reason for joining the ELC was that, as an inshore fisherman, I had serious reservations about the proposed pipeline from Northern Pulp that was to carry effluent from the mill into Northumberland Strait. As a member of the ELC, I believe it is our task to hear the concerns of all the stakeholders regarding the operation of the mill and relay these concerns to Northern Pulp.

The questions asked by the stakeholders must be answered truthfully. Through consultation, it is possible a mill transformed to meet the highest environmental standards will be acceptable to the stakeholders.
