Pulp Mill Pollution Case Continues
 

 


  
The Georgia-Pacific NPDES permit (contaminated water release permit) appeal is in progress through the Georgia Center for Law in the Public Interest, in an effort to reverse the ecological decline of Turtle River.  Settlement talks have resulted in a proposed settlement on the Georgia-Pacific NPDES permit, which is before the court.  One year of sampling the Georgia-Pacific Pulp Mill's water discharge for temperature and color will take place.  Currently, issues around the proposed sampling plan for Turtle River are being resolved.
