NEW GLASGOW, NS, Sept. 23, 2013 (Local News) - Driving up to the Boat Harbour Treatment Facility, Northern Pulp environmental manager Dave Davis talks with some regret about the land the provincial government expropriated from families in the 1960s to build the waste treatment facility and even the location of it - decisions neither he nor anyone else now at his company had anything to do with.

"This is not what most people want to live next to," Davis said. "We didn't pick it in the first place, but it's the hand we're dealt."

Despite that, Davis maintains the facility is properly managed and meets all environmental requirements. It receives third party testing and is monitored by the Nova Scotia Department of Environment on a regular basis.
