Paper mill will pay $70K to end environmental case

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin paper mill has agreed to pay $70,000 to settle alleged violations of its air pollution permit.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced his office’s settlement with Appleton Coated LLC of Combined Locks.

The mill produces high-end coated paper for traditional and digital printing and papers for books, catalogs, inserts and other products.

A civil complaint alleged the company failed to maintain records, used a noncompliant coating and operated equipment in violation of its air permit granted by the Department of Natural Resources.

An Outagamie County judge has approved the settlement.

  1. Question: Did MMSD pay any fines for dumping millions of gallons of raw sewerage into Lake Michigan in the past 20 years?????

    Answer: No, they have not.
    Notice the double standard. If you are a liberal, democrat supported group like Milwaukee Metro Sewerage District that is not electable or accountable to the public, you can dump millions of gallons of raw sewerage into the lake, but when a paper mill violates a environmental law, they are hammered.
    Interesting, how the same people who are up in arms about the BP caused oil disaster in the Golf don’t seem to mind a governmental agency dumping millions of gallons of raw sewerage in Lake Michigan. Liberals=Hypocrites.
