CORVALLIS, OR, July 3, 2015 (Local News) -Cascade Pacific Pulp is taking another run at eliminating an unsightly waste plume that periodically stains the Willamette River downstream from its Halsey pulp mill.

Over the last two years, the company has spent about $2 million to address the problem, which occurs when low river flows fail to adequately dilute the plume of treated effluent coming out of a combined water intake/wastewater discharge facility 15 miles upstream of Corvallis. The facility is owned by Cascade Pacific and also serves an adjoining tissue plant operated by Georgia-Pacific.
