Water quality


An incident at the Baie-Comeau Smelter in January 2013 resulted in an exceedance of the standard for C10-C50 hydrocarbon in runoff water. All other measured parameters for our final effluent were in compliance with norms. Corrective measures were implemented at the Baie-Comeau Smelter to repair leaks detected in the compressor system and faulty junctions made several years ago.
