February 1, 2017

A  portion of the International Paper mill in Cantonment will be restarting soon, IP officials said Tuesday.

The mill has been idle for more than a week following a January 22 explosion, but that’s about to change.

Those in the area may notice steam and hear loud noises that are a normal part of the process, according to International Paper.

    Since the mill has been down Perdido bay has become clear not like chocolate milk and the oxygen levels are the best in years. There must be something they can do to improve their affluent so the bay does not suffer.

    Good news for our community. A step in the right direction however, you never know what corporate leaders may do. I will remain wary until everything is back the way it was. This was more a PR nightmare than anything. For some in the area it may be like winning the lotto. Everyone and their mommas may be claiming headaches, breathing problems, and the like trying to get a dollar out of IP. Until those issues are as well resolved, i will remain skeptical. Wonderful job to IP though.
