This week's NEWS

There's a new topgun at EPA! Where there's smoke, there's fire... and in Minnesota, where there's ammonia, there's nitrite and nitrate, too. "The buck stops here" in the village Mayor's office when it comes to water quality monitoring. Get your customers involved in reporting security breaches! Chairman Pete is mad as heck and he isn't going to... have the Energy bill (MTBE) conference committee meet. Too much fluoride in Massachusetts and not enough in London? Waterborne typhoid fever is still around. Good news... sort of... on the THM health effects front. How to deal with uncertainty on unregulated contaminants? A common theme this week: People get grouchy when they don't get timely info on water contaminants. The message seems to be: Inform the public early and often! Perchlorate health effects debated at NAS meeting.

We are prepared to advise utilities about recycle treatment needs to minimize risks associated with plant upset, pathogen accumulation, recycle of preformed DBPs and precursors, as well as nuisance constituents. We can help confirm compliance with the various FBRR requirements, and help enhance operations by conducting an audit of your recycle practices.
