Nova Scotia provided more details Wednesday about its decision to take over the cleanup of the province's biggest environmentally contaminated site, saying delays in Northern Pulp's portion of the project threatened to interfere with the $300-million remediation of Boat Harbour.

The company was ordered last year to remove the top layer of sludge from the bottom of settling ponds at the pulp mill effluent treatment facility as part of its decommissioning.
