Bio-assay and Chemical Analysis of East Texas Pulp and Paper Company's Waste Waters, Evadale, Texas


East Texas Pulp and Paper Company started production in December, 1954, and has been having waste control problems from the start. Wastes from the mill have contaminated all of East Canal, Lake Bayou, and, on occasions, sections of the Neches River. Four pollution complaints have been filed against the pulp company sice they began operations, the lastest one filed in August, 1958. Company officials have announced that several methods of treatment are being investigated but no progress appears to have been made so far.
