Officials from the Grays Harbor PUD and Cosmo Specialty Fibers will meet tomorrow to discuss the power outage that occurred two weekends ago that forced the pulp mill to shut down operations.

The outage also affected the Sierra Pacific mill in Junction City.

Sierra Pacific was able to come back online right away after power was restored but it took a couple of days for Cosmo to bring their plant up to speed.

The meeting will also include discussions about Cosmo’s contract with the PUD which is set to renew in October.

CHEHALIS RIVER BACTERIA LEVELS DOWN

August 30, 2011 Comments off

Bacterial pollution in the Chehalis River Basin is lower, according to the latest data supplied by state environmental officials.

The Tacoma News Tribune reports about 80 percent of the water-quality monitoring stations in the river basin that failed fecal coliform standards from 1996 through 2004 now meet those standards.

The health of people coming into contact with the water is threatened when bacteria levels from human and animal waste exceed safe levels.

The lower pollution levels are especially important for the Chehalis River watershed in Grays Harbor because it supports not only the shellfish industry but also other fisheries and recreational use.
