HALIFAX, NS, Jan. 18, 2019 (CBC) -The Nova Scotia government will not relax its January 2020 deadline to close the Boat Harbour wastewater effluent treatment facility, even though regulatory issues have delayed the start date for the massive cleanup project by months and perhaps even a year.

The delay is significant because Northern Pulp has asked the province to keep Boat Harbour open beyond the scheduled closing in order to continue treating 75 million litres of effluent daily from its Pictou County pulp mill.

The mill says it needs more time to prepare the waste treatment facility that will replace Boat Harbour.
