Pearl River property owners to receive part of a $15M settlement

BOGALUSA, LA (WAFB) -   Nearly 2,000 people stretching from Bogalusa to Slidell will be getting paid as part of a 15 million dollar settlement from a paper mill spill.

Almost three months earlier, Temple Inland Paper Mill located in Bogalusa, released a black liquid that caused a massive fish kill.  The settlement will go to property owners along the Pearl River. International Paper bought the mill and is currently in the process of renovating it.
