Neucel Specialty Cellulose Ltd. has been convicted in provincial court for illegally discharging waste from their pulp mill operation in Port Alice, B.C. The company has been ordered to pay $1,000 in fines to the province and $174,000 to the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation.

In 2011, Neucel was found to have exceeded authorized levels of discharge into Neroutsos Inlet on three separate occasions. B.C.'s Conservation Officer Service, supported by Environment Canada, conducted a joint investigation and forwarded recommended charges to B.C.’s Crown counsel.
