Pulp Mill garners water permit.

The State Water Board unanimously voted to approve the NPDES permit to allow Freshwater Pulp to start the mill. This was the last large regulatory hurdle for the Pulp Mill to surpass. Congratulations to Bob Simpson and may many workers soon start back to work!

I hope that now things will start to move in the direction that we have all been waiting for. The mill has been a major part of the economy in Humboldt for the last 40plus years.

I think Mr. Simpson has the support of most environmental conscience organizations. This mill looks like they can be a standard bearer for pulp mills in the future. I just hope all things go smoothly from here on.

Richard,

It has come to my attention former Evergreen employees are receiving settlement checks for their unpaid medical benefits. The Fed's were successful but can only help those who help themselves by submitting claims.
