In a letter dated March 17, 2011 to Mr. Bob Simpson of Freshwater Tissue Co. the Regional Water Board discussed the 2nd Revised concrete sampling plan. Demolition sampling data needs to be submitted to the Water Board no later than 2 weeks from the beginning of demolition or May 1, 2011 at the latest.

It seems that buildings are going to come down. Shouldn't there be more public information on this?

What game are you talking about? Freshwater and the engineering firms assisting us, have been transparent throughout the permitting process.

As I have stated before, if you believe you have information previously not disclosed to the NCRQCB then you should submit the information to the proper authorities. Freshwater has never been a polluter, nor will it be, so I am not concerned with veiled threats.

What do you think you have learned? If the pulp mill were operating today it would enjoy a $1,000/ton pulp market. The mill would net $100 million per year. Even the skeptical should understand we would rather run the mill than to scrap it. Scrapping is not sustainable but the price of market pulp will remain strong for a long time.
