In a letter dated February 26, 2010 the Water Board told the pulp mill that their application for a permit was incomplete and that they have to meet environmental standards before they open. Since that letter went out the Governor's Office has contacted them pushing for a time table to allow the PULP MILL TO OPEN WITHOUT MEETING ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS. They are encouraged to come up with a time table for meeting the standards later. Furthermore, the pulp mill will be applying for a permit to release water during the cleanup. The only guarantee we have that they will not release some of the many cancer causing chemicals that are on site is the threat that they will get in trouble if they are caught. They will be releasing up to 3 million gallons of hot water a day. Can we say boiled fish?There wil be a meeting of the Water Board at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka on March 24,2010. Next time you hear a politician crying crocodile tears about global warming holding his/her recycled coffee cup,think of the pollution they allow and promote.
