The Alberta government has laid charges against a Hinton pulp mill for failing to comply with provincial environmental and dangerous goods legislation.
West Fraser Mills in Hinton faces a total of six charges after the release of a substance in September 2014 that allegedly wasn’t immediately reported to Alberta Environment.
The company also faces one charge of failing to follow safety rules while unloading a chemical from a truck.
The first court appearance is set for October 19, 2016 in Hinton.
Officials with Alberta Environment will not say what the substance was because the matter is now before the courts.
