From Longview Fibre
Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging, Inc. will be undergoing a normal cleaning operation on one of its boilers on Tuesday, Sept. 27, beginning at approximately 7:30 a.m. The process is expected to conclude by the end of the day, but may carry over to the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 28.
The process includes blowing steam at various intervals throughout the day. Each steam blow will be preceded by a mill whistle. It is likely that the steam blow and mill whistle could be seen and heard in locations near to the mill. Longview wants to assure its neighbors that these events are part of normal operations, and that the sequence of events could occur as often as every half hour over the course of the day. Each sequence is expected to last two to three minutes.
