PORT TOWNSEND, WA, Sept. 29, 2010 (Local News) -The Port Townsend Paper Corp.'s fast track for permission to pursue a $55 million cogeneration project has hit a speed bump.

Calling it an oversight, the state Department of Ecology last Friday reissued its decision from July to not require the paper mill to produce an environment impact statement (EIS) for its proposal to upgrade power boiler no. 10, add $10 million of new pollution control equipment and install a new steam turbine generator that will generate as much as 25 megawatts of power.

The decision opens a new two-week comment period that ends Oct. 8.
