Arsenic

  • Small Nevada city looks at its options for meeting arsenic MCL (Reno Gazette Journal, March 14)
    Commentary: Money is the root of all... arsenic compliance, and Yerington faces significant costs for treatment of several wells. An interesting twist is that the city has included in its options the idea of splitting its water system in half to get each part under 3000 service connections, presumably to enable each half to get additional time for compliance. This concept will likely be a non-starter with USEPA and Nevada's primacy agency. (The illogical extension of this concept would be to divide the system into many small units with 15 services in each so the SDWA wouldn't apply at all.) We've heard about consolidation to get compliance, but bifurcation to avoid compliance will probably be ruled unacceptable.
  • Arizona investor-owned utility spends $30 million for 20 arsenic-treatment facilities... and seeks rate relief from PUC (Casa Grande Valley Dispatch, March 15)
