Tembec’s Spruce Falls mill was fined $30,000, plus a victim fine surcharge, and pleaded guilty to two charges related to the discharge of silt into a stream.
The mill’s Woodlands Division built a 9 km logging road in Griffin township in 2001 to access timber. But improper road construction methods allowed significant amount of silt to enter into a stream leading to the Groundhog River in July 2001.
The company reported the discharge to the Ministry of Natural Resources but failed to notify the Ministry of Environment.
