Northern Pulp admits it is likely to miss Nova Scotia 2020 effluent deadline

November 14, 2018 - 18:52

HALIFAX, NS, Nov. 14, 2018 (CBC) -The owners of a pulp and paper mill in Pictou County, N.S., say it's unlikely a new effluent treatment pipeline will be ready in time for the government-imposed deadline of January 2020.

"We are at risk of missing the timelines by a few months," said Jean-Francois Guillot, vice president of operations at Paper Excellence.

"At this point, it's risky," he said. "I don't think so. We can have effluent treatment working by January 2020, it's just the discharge point, we kind of have to do backflips to make that happen."
