PENSACOLA, FL, March 15, 2010 (Pensacola News Journal ) -International Paper is poised to begin a long-awaited environmental improvement project after the Florida Department of Environmental Protection signed off on a permit to discharge industrial wastewater at a Perdido Bay wetlands.

The original cost estimate when the project was proposed nearly a decade ago was $85 million, but IP spokeswoman Jessica Morris said "we're in the process of completing detailed engineering and new cost estimates."
