Re: “Hark, Another Pulp Mill Lawsuit

I can only assume that this is referring to the federal EPA instead of the California EPA, because almost all of the compounds listed, if not all, were already monitored and controlled at the Samoa mill. If it is the federal limits the suit is about, I expect little to no effect to Freshwater Pulp because the pulp mill was operated under the state limits, which were already more strict then the federal ones. When we former workers say that the Samoa mill is one of the cleanest in America we aren’t blowing smoke. Every time I had a chance to talk to workers of other mills they we surprised to hear the emission limits we operated under and even more shocked to hear that we could meet those limits. The people that want the mill to stay closed have be grasping at straws and using misinformation to scare people into fighting the restarting of the mill. Most of the problems at that mill have been BODs and Particulates, which are overviews of water quality and air quality respectively. They bring up these problems then start talking about some of the more hazardous emissions of the kraft pulping process, which, to my knowledge, never been a problem for the mill to stay under the legal limits and some of which are not even generated at the Samoa mill because of the TCF bleaching process
