Northern Pulp Treated Effluenct Discharge
~65,000 cubic meters per day
Niagra Falls Average Flow Rate
~2400 cubic meters per second = 207,360,000 cubic meters per day
COMPARISON – Niagra Falls vs Northern Pulp Effluent Discharge
It takes 3,190 days, or about 9 years, for Northern Pulp to discharge the amount of effluent that is equal to the amount of water that flows over Niagra Falls in 1 day.
So, one need only watch Niagra Falls for a little less than 6 days to see water equivalent to the effluent discharged by Northern Pulp in the 51 years since it opened in 1967.
