International Paper's effects on our beaches in 2013
The foam at our beach in 2013 has started out like all the rest of the years - BAD, especially when the wind blows the effluent from the wetlands to our beaches. IP is out of 11-mile creek and discharging to wetlands. However the wetlands has done little to help the foam problem.
