JACKSONVILLE, FL, June 16, 2011 (Local News) -Georgia-Pacific continues to move forward with plans to pipe discharge from its pulp and paper mill in Palatka to the St. Johns River.

Representatives from Georgia-Pacific, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the St. Johns Riverkeeper presented their views about the project Wednesday to the Jacksonville Waterways Commission at City Hall.

"The pipeline project will address water quality issues in Rice Creek (a tributary of the St. Johns River) associated with our discharge by relocating that discharge through a pipeline to the St. Johns River," said Mike Curtis, compliance director from Georgia-Pacific.
