Nova Scotia Power must pay the costs associated with a fuel oil spill at its Tufts Cove power plant on the Dartmouth waterfront in 2018.

Costs in addition to the $175,000 fine imposed by a Nova Scotia provincial court when the company pleaded guilty to an offense under the Fisheries Act.

Approximately 24,000 liters of heavy fuel oil were spilled in Halifax Harbor on August 2, 2018. The company said the spill had been caused by a rusty pipe.
