CROSSET, AR, Feb. 11, 2019 (ArkansasOnline) -The harshest critics of this south Arkansas town's paper mill said they were happy -- with some reservations -- Thursday night with environmental regulators' actions against the mill, the town's largest employer.
Government officials, Georgia-Pacific leaders, Crossett residents and others concerned with the business of the Crossett paper mill met Thursday night to discuss a proposed consent decree assessing penalties and requiring technological improvements to the tune of millions of dollars.
The consent decree is good news for some who have criticized the mill's air emissions. Monitoring shows that hydrogen sulfide, a rotten egg-smelling gas, is often emitted at levels high enough to cause a stench and aggravate sinuses.
