Northern Pulp is looking into the feasibility of treating the run-off from its toxic landfill onsite, instead of trucking it to Truro.

Since the shutdown of its Boat Harbour effluent treatment system in May 2020, the shuttered pulp and paper mill has been paying the Colchester County Wastewater Treatment Facility to treat the storm water and landfill leachate. Once processed, it ends up pumped into the Bay of Fundy.
