JACKSONVILLE, FL, Nov. 8, 2011 (Florida Times-Union ) -The head of Rayonier acknowledged Monday that there are problems with the water it discharges into the Altamaha River at its paper mill near Jesup but said the company is ahead of schedule on cleaning it up.

The Georgia Water Coalition on Saturday ranked a stretch of river in the vicinity of the mill second on its "Dirty Dozen," a list of the state's most polluted or otherwise damaged rivers, streams, wetlands and marshes.

"We are very committed to the water quality of the Altamaha River," Rayonier Chairman and CEO Lee Thomas said. "It's important to us, just as it is important to the people of southeast Georgia. We're working hard to improve the discharge."
