Northern Pulp Effluent Treatment Facility Project

Northern Pulp Nova Scotia Corporation is proposing the construction, operation, and decommissioning of a new effluent treatment facility adjacent to its bleached kraft pulp mill, located at Abercrombie Point near Pictou, Nova Scotia. Treated effluent would be discharged through a new pipeline, approximately 15 kilometres, in length running mainly along Highway 106 before entering the marine environment at Caribou Harbour and out into the Northumberland Strait. The project is intended to replace the existing Boat Harbour Effluent Treatment Facility, which is legislated to close by January 31, 2020.
