COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Weyerhaeuser Co.'s Columbus pulp mill is paying a $37,500 civil fine for exceeding emissions limits during a 2013 test.
Based in Federal Way, Washington, Weyerhaeuser agreed to pay the fine to the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality.
A Nov. 24 order published by the department says that Weyerhaeuser's boiler exceeded limits for emitting fine particles.
