The Bogalusa paper mill which is owned and operated by Temple-Inland has submitted an arrangement, Tuesday August 16th 2011, to the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality which would allow it to resume operations.
Local residents, business owners, recreationalist and agitated Gov. Bobby Jindal said, “I made it very clear that we expect the company to clean up this mess, not only to make sure that it never happens again before they reopen the plant, but also that they have got responsibility to reverse the damage that has been done by this discharge.”
Wednesday, August 17th, the DEQ submitted responses on the proposed plan by Temple-Inland on the plant restart, and those revisions are under review.
Thornhill Law Firm was the first to file a class action lawsuit on behalf of victims of the discharge by Temple Inland. If you have information or a claim, contact us at (985)641-5010 or toll free 800-989-2707.
