Oh, foamy… It’s the St. John River

This morning I got up earlier than normal to go for a little walk before work so I went down to the Boardwalk.

To my surprise the harbour was like 40% covered in this foamy stuff that was flowing down the river. Now it is not uncommon for a little of this stuff to be down river from the pulp mill but this was the most I have ever seen.

I am curious to what this substance consists of someone said it was just the starches from the boiling of the pulp. Another person said it was the runoff from Moosehead however that is stupid as that runoff flows on to Main Street West, and that guy was drunk on the boardwalk at 8am so I don’t really beleve him.
