HALIFAX, NS, July 9, 2015 (Chronicleherald.ca) -The province will review planned water usage reductions for Northern Pulp but is sticking by its plan to close Boat Harbour as the mill's effluent treatment facility by 2020.

Environment Minister Randy Delorey issued his decision on Wednesday on an appeal by the Pictou County mill of its most recent industrial approval. The mill's owners argued in their appeal that the new conditions were too stringent. In particular, they said the condition to stop using the Boat Harbour plant sooner than 2030, when the lease is scheduled to end, would effectively shut down the mill.
