SAINT JOHN, NB, Aug. 27, 2018 (CBC) -A recent spill of two million litres of partially treated pulp-mill effluent into a tributary of the St. Croix River is raising concerns about the long-term health of the river dividing New Brunswick from the United States.

One of the main lines of the Woodland Pulp mill in Baileyville, Maine, west of Calais, ruptured Aug. 10, sending wastewater into Wapsaconhagen Stream.

A police officer on patrol smelled an odour and contacted the mill that day.
