PORT ANGELES — No more billows of steam from KPLY’s towering smokestack?
The plywood mill returned to full operation Monday after being down for a weeklong equipment upgrade.
But its landmark smokestack is now idle.
Officials at the company said the stack would no longer be used.
KPLY shut down last week for improvements to the powerhouse, said Ernie Van Ogle, general manager of KPLY.
“We took out the wet scrubber and put in a baghouse,” he said.
