PALATKA, FL, May 2, 2012 (Local News) -A $30 million pipeline from Georgia-Pacific's Palatka paper mill to the St. Johns River is about 75 percent complete and on schedule to meet an October state deadline, company officials say.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection ordered the pipeline to divert the mill's treated wastewater to the river from Rice Creek, a tributary to the St. Johns that has been the discharge point for decades. However, the mill's significant volume and the creek's small flow make it unable to meet federal water quality rules.

Pipeline construction began last year.
