The North Coast Regional Water Quality Board approved a new water permit for the mill.  It was clear that it was a done deal when the Freshwater lawyer walked in in his suit carrying his own version of the Permit and the Board accepted it.  Apparently the investors are getting nervous because of recent letters from the E.P.A. and the Office of Enforcement.  Freshwater asked for a 90 day delay so they could raise the money.  They brought in their own revised copies of the permit that delays everything 90 days. It was clear that nothing any citizens from Eureka said would have made any difference to this board. More to come.

INVESTORS BEWARE. WE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE GOOD NIGHT.  THIS PERMIT CAN AND WILL BE APPEALED.

(Mr. Simpson says that Mr. Tsang does not work for Freshwater.  We will take his word for it unless we find evidence to the contrary.  We make every effort to be accurate.)

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 repeat. There will be an appeal. Don't go shopping at the mall just yet.

How many times do these poor workers have to get screwed before they learn?

I thought the government was spending tax dollars to retrain those workers.
