This week's NEWS

Fluoride Foes Follow Fallacious Flight of Fancy... Fine Fellows Feeding Fluoride Found Fit! Ontario, Canada's new law to address "menace pour l'eau potable" (drinking water threats) must be balanced: It is criticized by both sides. What's new about the water in Bristol, CT, other than the lead Action Level being exceeded? While the Potomac has been described by some wags as "the river that divides the U.S.," controversy about endocrine-disruptor testing brings both sides together. And those threespined sticklebacks are at it again... giving perchlorate a bad name!

Regulatory Compliance Strategies for New LT2 and DBP Rules

 The EPA's new Long-Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) and Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR) have been released, so it's time to get prepared with strategies that really work — and Malcolm Pirnie can help!

EPA estimates that almost 3,000 public water systems will have to update their water treatment processes to comply with the new regulations. Multiple barrier strategies provide added protection — just like an insurance policy. Examples of the barriers that will help with compliance are membranes, UV disinfection, granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration, and disinfection with chloramines. Each must be carefully considered and tailored to meet the needs of your utility.

To learn more about the new regulations and find out which treatment strategies are right for you, please contact Zaid Chowdhury, zchowdhury@pirnie.com, or visit www.mcguireinc.com/LT2/index.html.
