Technical Bulletin No. 0573: Pulping Effluents in the Aquatic Environment – Part II: A Review of Unpublished Studies of In-Stream Aquatic Biota in the Vicinity of Pulp Mill Dischar

In 1988, the Procter and Gamble Company retained Sirrine Environmental Consultants to assemble the available information on pulping effluents in the aquatic environment. This project was undertaken to facilitate an examination of the sources of apparent contradictions between recent North American and Northern European research on the aquatic effects of pulping effluents. As part of this effort, the Procter & Gamble Company requested from other U.S. pulp and paper companies the results of all company-sponsored studies of aquatic biota in the receiving waters in the vicinity of pulp mill outfalls.
