GLENS FALLS, NY, Jan. 23, 2019 (PostStar) -A problem with Finch Paper’s pulp digester may have had city residents smelling rotten egg fumes Tuesday morning.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation said it investigated reports of odors and determined the Finch Paper mill was the source.

Finch Paper officials told the DEC that its pulp digester has been shut down since Sunday. As a result, it is transferring the liquid contents to its wastewater treatment system and solid contents to open-air bunkers.
