This week's NEWS

LuJuana Wilcher sighting in Kentucky. RO membrane softening plants in Michigan are watched with interest. Perchlorate panel report adds fuel to the fire as does scientist's NAS resignation. Much ado about something.....water quality issues in Massachusetts. How much is the last little part per billion worth? Some are fearful about arsenic in water......others fear arsenic in regulation. The UK Thames desalination debate sounds like a beer commercial: "Less salt! More meters!" ERP happens! Even in Mendocino?

Desalination
  • Green group protests proposed first UK desalination plant (Guardian, June 14)
    Commentary: With plans to take water from the Thames only during the ebb tide (25% as salty as seawater) and not to run the plant "at full whack all the year round", this is the first of a number of similar proposals on the British horizon.  The opposition suggests conservation is a more effective and environmentally-friendly way to go citing the fact the water company only has meters on 19% of their London area customers.

PCE
  • USAF requests "technical impracticability" waiver on PCE cleanup at California base (LA Daily News, June 14)
    Commentary:  With controversy swirling about the heads of DOD for seeking exceptions, exemptions, waivers, and other excuses from environmental cleanups, some conspiracy-theory buffs will probably try to make a connect to this request at Edwards AFB.  The "law of diminishing returns" and the cost per unit of contaminant removed may be factored in where there is clearly no public health threat.
