PRINCE GEORGE, BC, Dec. 12, 2016 (Prince George Citizen ) -Canfor Pulp's bid to build a water treatment plant and decanting pond on the north shore of the Nechako River won city council's approval on Monday night, when a rezoning bylaw to allow the project to go ahead passed third reading following a public hearing.

Slated for the same plot of land on PG Pulpmill Road where a pump house is in place and just east of a groundwater well owned by Canfor Pulp, it will separate silt from water extracted from the river and discharge it into the pond.

The fresh water, in turn, would be sent along to the company's pulp mills as well as the Husky refinery, Canfor Pulp production manager Jason Korolek told council during a presentation.
