October 2016 – One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

This installment of News and Notes for October 2016 talks about the new challenges for MWRA Pellets:

  • Recently released Department of Agricultural Resources Plant Nutrient Application Requirements for Agricultural Land Regulations 330 CMR 3.00 challenge our victory on lowering the molybdenum limit.
  • The scope of the regulation has been dramatically increased, making it practically nonviable for land-use application of MWRA pellets in state.

Other topics covered in this News and Notes include available stormwater tools, our upcoming Operations Committee Meeting, and the EPA white paper on Lead and Copper Rule Revisions.
