This week's NEWS

Is a "better regulation" newsletter an oxymoron? Not all the iron in Minnesota is in those iron mines. Does AWWA have anything to say to EPA about its LT2 rule? Naahh! Just 100 pages worth! Should BWAs result in free water for customers? Everyone agrees completely about perchlorate's health risk - NOT! Somebody in Texas must be collecting reservoir hatch-covers. What advice will North Carolina water utilities give their customers on arsenic? Restrictions on groundwater "intake" areas debated in Connecticut.

Arsenic Source Water Protection
  • Proposed Connecticut aquifer protection regs raise concerns from Connecticut municipal officials (New Britain Herald, January 18)
    Commentary: The state's proposal to place a total ban on siting many types of new industries/businesses over drinking water aquifers is making many towns and cities nervous for all of the obvious reasons: Adverse economic impact, unfunded mandates, local control, and infinitesimally small state/federal funding. One important point debated revolves around the necessity for a total ban vs. providing adequate regulatory oversight.
