Description
[Back to Top]

A spill of greater than 3,000,000 gallons of wastewater from the Domtar Paper Mill in Woodland (Baileyville), Maine to the St Croix River occurred at about 0430 July 1, 2004. The wastewater came from the bleach plant on site and the pH is believed to be between 8 and 10. The facility is running additional analysis of the effluent. Maine Department of Environmental Protection (MEDEP) dispatched a wastewater inspector whose jurisdiction includes the Domtar facility. United States Coast Guard (USCG), MSO Portland dispatched 2 responders from their Belfast, Maine field office. EPA Region 1 dispatched OSC Mia Pasquerella who is currently working on a site in Brewer, Maine, approximately 2 1/2 hours from Woodland. Environment Canada was notified as the St Croix River separates Maine from New Brunswick, Canada. The Department of Interior (DOI), US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFW), and the Bureau of Indian Affairs were notified of the spill. No fish kills or associated problems have been called in to this office at the time of this memo. More information will be provided as it is made available.
