DEP tells Putnam mill to rethink dioxin, other problems

Published Jun. 1, 2009 - The Florida Times-Union
Georgia-Pacific’s paper mill near Palatka must reopen a search for ways to clean its wastewater, especially of cancer-causing dioxin, a state agency said Monday.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s order puts in question the future of a planned pipeline to carry wastewater from the mill to the St. Johns River. It could also obligate the company to begin a costly cleanup of dioxin in holding ponds that help filter wastewater.
