THUNDER BAY, ON, Feb. 24, 2021 (CBC) -The Ministry of the Environment says it will continue to look into an incident where Resolute Forest Products was discharging "higher than normal contaminant levels" through its effluent into the Kaministiquia River.

The ministry said it was notified on February 8 about the mill experiencing a problem with its effluent treatment system because of an unexpected shutdown of the kraft mill three days earlier. 

"As a result there were higher than normal contaminant levels in the effluent discharge to the Kaministiqua River. The company shut down the kraft mill to reduce the amount of effluent going into the river," a spokesperson for the ministry said in a statement.
