RE: Seeking lumber/sawmill p2 info...

EPA has a Sector Notebook entitled "Lumber and Wood Products Industry".
You can find it on the Enviro$en$e web site at 
http.es.epa.gov under the subtopic of EPA Sector Notebooks. The book can
also be purchased thru the U.S. Government Information office at phone
#202-512-2250 or Fax # 202-512-1800. The cost is about $9.00. I point
this out because the website copy may not show graphs and charts.

Subject: Seeking lumber/sawmill p2 info...

** High Priority **

Good morning,

I am seeking pollution prevention guidance pertaining to lumber and saw
milling operations.  I have made several attempts at searching the EPA,
Envirosense and the Great Lakes P2  Servers and can not seem to locate
pollution prevention information specific to lumber and saw mills.  In
fact each time I search, I manage to locate pollution prevention data
available on furniture making, pallets, veneers, etc...

Can anyone point me in the right direction or suggest a good source of
information on the internet specific to lumber and saw milling

Issues that are common to these type of operations include stormwater
issues, chemical dipping to prevent sap-staining, boiler and kiln
issues, bark, chip and various other wood waste solid waste issues, and
wetting of wood (energy usage).

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
