The  Department  of Environmental Quality is running  tests  at  the Temple Inland paper  mill  in  Bogalusa, where a toxic leak into the Pearl River caused the deaths of  hundreds of thousands of fish.


DEQ spokesman Rodney Mallett says they  are  not planning any changes to the permits in place at the mill, however, improvements to the water quality  system and additional monitoring by  the  company  will  be required before  the  mill  is allowed to resume operations. Mallett
says   the   existing   permits  are   adequate   to   protect   the environment.
