New Brunswick renews air quality approvals for three industrial facilities
FREDERICTON, CN-New Brunswick's Department of Environment and Local Government has renewed air quality operating approvals for three industrial facilities. They include New Brunswick Power Corporation's Courtenay Bay generating station in Saint John; Noranda Mining's Brunswick mines in Bathurst; and Connors Bros, a fish meal processing plant in Blacks Harbour. All three permits are being renewed for five-year terms, effective April 1 for NB Power and Noranda and effective April 15 for Connors. The companies' applications were subject to a 120-day public review period running from late 2003 into early 2004. Documentation supporting the review process, including a facility profile, draft and intended approvals, and summaries of issues raised and responses to those issues, may be viewed on the department's Web site, www.gnb.ca.
