The Public Advisory Committee (PAC) to the Thunder Bay Remedial Action Plan met May 8th at the City of Thunder Bay Bare Point water treatment plant. Go directly to the agenda and complete meeting information package.

Activity began at 6 p.m. with a tour of the water intake plant, followed by the PAC meeting at 7 p.m. The meeting dealt with reaction to the environmental and human health risk assessment report for North Harbour mercury contamination and plans for enhanced aquatic habitat near the former Northern Wood Preservers site. At the meeting, PAC members also voted to remove “aesthetics” from the list of problems in Thunder Bay Harbour. After touring the harbour by tugboat last fall they said that slicks, scums, foams, and objectionable odours in the harbour no longer existed, in part due to upgrades in effluent treatment processes for the City of Thunder Bay and various waterfront industries.
