Devils Lake plant might be problem

The new wheat processing plant in Devils Lake, N.D., sounds like a good idea. It will make consumables out of wheat instead of tree pulp, but it will come with many negative side effects.

The problem comes with the amount of pollution it will create in the process.

If you have ever lived next to a pulp mill, you will understand. The water used will be dumped back into the lake, and the air pollution will be noticeable for many miles.

I am surprised that there has been no public input on this project, as it will affect Devils Lake area for many years to come.
