Paper Excellence, which owns Crofton’s Catalyst mill, acknowledged that equipment failure at the mill led to the discharge of more than one million litres of waste water into the ocean in two instances in 2021.

But in a statement, Paper Excellence said that while the mill, which is one of the Municipality of North Cowichan’s biggest taxpayers, has a good environmental record, from time to time unforeseeable equipment problems occur.
