Northumberland Woodlot Owners and producers, Northern Pulp is faced with the possibility of shutting down and leaving the province. If this happens, most of the forest related operations in Nova Scotia would also cease to exist and will also greatly impact New Brunswick forest operations. Northern Pulp has completed 28 studies and 19 focus reports in the hopes of passing an environmental assessment. Northern Pulp has done their due diligence and engaged experts to determine the impact their new process will have on the environment. All the data gathered as a result of the studies points to improved processes. The science verifies this project will have very little impact on the environment.
If the assessment passes, an extension to the Boat Harbour Act will be required in order to complete the construction of the new $130,000,000 treatment facility. The provincial government is asking for public input through an online link or by written submissions to the Minister of the Environment.
Here’s the link: www.novascotia.ca/nse/ea/comments.asp In the “select a project pop down menu”, select Replacement Effluent Treatment Facility Project.
Please feel free to offer your support. This will only take a minute!
The Nova Scotia and New Brunswick Forest Industry will be greatly affected. The poll will close on November the 8th.
Thank you for taking the time to respond to the Department of Environment’s public consultation process on the Replacement of the Effluent Treatment Facility Project at Northern Pulp. Please note all comments received from the public consultation will be posted on the department’s website for public viewing. In the case of an individual, the address, email and contact information will be removed before being placed on the website.
