Dec. 13, 2016 – The Prince George Citizen is reporting that Canfor Pulp’s bid to build a water treatment plant and decanting pond on the north shore of the Nechako River has won city council’s approval.

“Slated for the same plot of land on PG Pulpmill Road where a pump house is in place and just east of a groundwater well owned by Canfor Pulp, it will separate silt from water extracted from the river and discharge it into the pond.

The fresh water, in turn, would be sent along to the company’s pulp mills as well as the Husky refinery, Canfor Pulp production manager Jason Korolek told council during a presentation,” reports Mark Nielsen.
