David MacKenzie of Northern Pulp said that work is continuing to remove the effluent from the area and that no excavation or equipment have been moved onto the site to date.
“There was no digging done at the location,” he said. “It is my understanding that the soil was pushed away from the force of the break in the pipe.”
MacKenzie noted that there was a pool of effluent over the site of the leak at Indian Cross Point that has since been removed by the pumper trucks.
More to come.
