Plan Ahead to Avoid Wastewater Fines
Catch up with the latest EPA wastewater regulations, and learn how Hubbard-Hall can help you.
The recent trend in wastewater treatment initiatives is hard to ignore. Joining many other concerned towns and watershed districts, North Carolina is placing stricter discharge limits on phosphates and other nutrients into public treatment facilities. Over the next 2 years North Carolina will enforce the EPA Nutrient Management Plan in two watersheds, the Jordan Lake and Falls Lake. How does this affect you?
To begin with, the EPA has stated that North Carolina, along with several other states in the south, needs to have a Nutrient Management Plan in place. This is a commitment from the state to address nutrient enrichment in surface waters by formalizing a strategy to adopt measurable nutrient criteria and prioritize the major bodies of water in the state. The main two nutrients of concern currently have been established as nitrogen and phosphorus. With finalization not being until 2018 you may ask, “Why worry now?” The reason is simple. With the municipalities being tasked to lower their discharge of nutrients, they will push this back on industries who have discharge permits. Industries who are our customers. There will be a review of discharge permits, and a lowering of the discharge limits of nitrogen and phosphates.
We understand how important it is for our customers to keep up to date with all industry regulations. This is why our Aquapure technical experts are continuously updating our customers on EPA regulation changes, and helping them avoid wastewater treatment upsets and surcharges. For the regulation changes in the article above, we have had great success with our Aquapure ICM in helping lower phosphates.
