GEORGIA PACIFIC CONSUMER PRODUCTS

PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD FEBRUARY 25, 2021-APRIL 23, 2021

We invite you to comment on draft Agreed Order 18201 and the Public Participation Plan for cleanup actions at the Georgia-Pacific paper mill in Camas.

The proposed order requires the mill to investigate contamination on the site and perform interim actions to address contamination when required. The proposed plan describes how we will provide outreach and engagement on cleanup activities.

We are not aware of any plans for the sale or shutdown of current operations at the site.
