May 27, 2010 - 13:27

CANTON, NC, May 27, 2010 (Citizen-Times) -The N.C. Division of Water Quality on Wednesday issued Evergreen Packaging a permit renewal for the discharge of treated wastewater into the Pigeon River.

The mill had been operating on permit renewal extensions since 2006. The new permit won't be up for renewal until 2015.

However, differences of opinion over the paper mill's discharge of wastewater into the river aren't likely to end soon.
