International Paper's effects on our beaches in 2015
So far in 2015, we have had foam and scum especially after rains, dark water, low dissolved oxygen, high coliform bacteria, and lots of organic matter on the bottom. IP is out of 11-mile creek and discharging to wetlands. However the wetlands has done little to help environmental problems on Perdido Bay.

IP's effluent on our beaches is very apparent

Rains wash all the pollution out of wetlands to our beaches
