Residents near the Georgia-Pacific containerboard mill in Toledo witnessed airborne foam wafting from the mill over the weekend. Though the upset in operations that created the foam has passed, the substance may remain a few days longer.
The mill released a statement Sunday addressing the emission of foam from their facility. The foam was a result of “an upset condition” in papermaking operations and originated in the facility’s wastewater treatment system. GP stated that the foam is non-toxic and can be washed away with water.
