Local mill leading national polluter, says group

The Post-Star reports that Glens Falls' paper mill Finch Pruyn is the nation's 6th largest polluter of cancer-causing chemicals, the leading polluter in New York state. According to the group Environment America, Finch released into the Hudson River 26,541 pounds of carcinogens, the vast majority of which was formaldehyde.

I work at Adirondack Community College. To date, at least 11 women have contracted breast cancer or some other kind over the last two decades and two have died. This is about 10% of our full time staff. Fynch Pruyn seems a likely culprit.
