Plight of the Pigeon

Record #:
The Pigeon River rises near Shining Rock and flows clear and pristine through mountains and valleys until it reaches Canton, where the Champion Paper Mill is located. From there downstream the character of the water changes; the water becomes brown and too warm to support much fish life. Wooten discusses balancing environmental concerns with the strong economic boost the mill gives the region.
