New Brunswick Power collecting samples near
generating station amid arsenic-level concerns

FREDERICTON - New Brunswick's power utility is doing environmental testing in waters near its Grand Lake generating station amid concerns over arsenic levels.

Environment Canada data released last month indicated arsenic levels in the sediment exceeded federal guidelines, while samples taken from fish showed results were under the established guidelines.

NB Power officials will take additional samples over the next eight months as officials look to improve the lake's effluent quality.

Anthony Bielecki, the utility's environmental manager for power generation, says preliminary results should be released by late spring, while a final report will be issued in the fall.

The utility has created a special committee within the company to deal with Environment Canada's findings. ALeqM5jQDe2Mm6FZW5cawozqqhg1NQFFgA
