Report suggesting mercury still leaking near Grassy Narrows 'deeply concerning,' chief says

 


A team of scientists has released a report suggesting that an old chemical plant in Dryden, Ont., is still leaking mercury and contaminating the Wabigoon-English River system upstream from the Grassy Narrows First Nation in northwestern Ontario.

Last summer, the team sampled the mud at the bottom of the river as it passed the old paper mill site where paper was bleached and from two lakes upstream.
