PORT TOWNSEND, WA, Sept. 20, 2017 (Local News) -There has been an uptick in the number of odor complaints about the Port Townsend Paper Corp. in the past month compared to the previous few months, both mill officials and state Department of Ecology (Ecology) officials agree.

A Facebook page devoted to mapping the incidents also has seen an increase in complaints, says MillOdorous founder Nancy Botta.

Mill and Ecology officials say wind patterns and smoke from fires around the state may have roles in the increase.
