SPOKANE, WA, April 3, 2018 (The Spokesman-Review) -A Millwood manufacturer discharged more pollution into the Spokane River than its permits allowed on several days in 2016.
Inland Empire Paper Co., which makes newsprint, reported the violations to the state. It is owned by Cowles Co., which publishes The Spokesman-Review.
Company officials took quick action to correct the problem, which resulted in higher than allowed limits of organic materials entering the river, said Brook Beeler, a Department of Ecology spokeswoman. No fines were levied against the company.
