Stage of RAP Development: 1

Are electronic maps available that include the AOC's geographic boundaries and associated sources of pollution? Yes

Beneficial Use Impairments (BUI):
(The BUI will appear underlined if a delisting target has been determined.
If underlined, click on the BUI to display the delisting target.)
Restriction on Fish & Wildlife Consumption
* Virtual elimination and zero discharge of persistent toxins.
* Eliminate fish consumption restrictions.
Degradation of Fish and Wildlife Population
* Promote self-sustaining population of indigenous species.
* Prevent invasion of foreign organisms.
* Fish and wildlife populations should not differ from surrounding area.
Degradation of Benthos
* Atmospheric inputs should not adversely impact aquatic biota.
* Benthic communities should not differ from surrounding areas.
* Elimination of toxins and contaminants in aquatic organisms.
Restrictions on Dredging Activities

OTHER SIGNIFICANT ISSUES
Issues:
Mercury contaminated material was removed from a former chlor-alkali plant & safely disposed
Secondary treatment of effluent at Kraft pulp mill eliminated dioxins and furans
Studies are on-going to determine the extent and depth of mercury contamination. Bioaccumulation studies will determine if there is a need for dredging.
