Sappi Continues to Sustainably Manage Water in Accordance with Comprehensive Environmental Permits

Multimedia with summary

Our North American mills draw water from surface sources (rivers and lakes) and return treated water to the same primary sources. As we do with our emissions, we manage our use and discharge of water in accordance with comprehensive environmental permits. Our specific intake and discharge grew this year, yet we were pleased to see a decrease in biological oxygen demand (BOD) and total suspended solids (TSS), see bar charts. The decrease in BOD and TSS is in a large part due to the multi-year project at the Cloquet Mill.
